Robbery at the 2700 block of Indianola Avenue.
When the officer arrived to the scene, which
was at the gas pumps of a Git-n-Go, he found
the victim laying on the ground on his back
in a pool of blood, still alert and breathing.
Two witnesses told police about a man and a
woman who were involved. The victim yelled,
"Someone call the police," and the
woman cried, "No, no. Everything is OK.
Don't call the police." Then the alleged
suspect reportedly pushed the victim and punched
him in the face, causing him to fall down and
hit his head on the concrete, which cut his
head open and caused bleeding. The woman then
got into the driver's seat of the car, the suspect
jumped in, and they took off. The victim was
taken to the hospital. He told police the woman's
stripper name but did not know her real name.
