WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE…
A man called police around 8:20 p.m. on Dec. 17 after he was allegedly robbed at gun point. He said his friend had asked him to come to the Hawkeye Motel, 2707 S.E. 14th St., to pick him up. When he got there, he asked two men standing outside if they knew his friend. That’s when one pulled out a handgun (black with a long barrel) from his hoodie, pointed it at him and told him to get out of the car and empty his pockets. He turned over his wallet. The suspect told him to walk away and that if he called police, they would come back and shoot him. The victim walked to the Car-Hop and waited for the police.
Police were dispatched to the 4100 block of First Street around 7 p.m. on Dec. 17 regarding a shooting. The victim was sitting in a chair holding a towel on the front side of his chest. There was blood in the front room and kitchen. Medics walked him out the front door. A witness didn’t hear or see anything but told police that the victim and his girlfriend/wife have had domestics in the past.
THE ONE THAT DIDN’T GET AWAY
Police went to the 1300 block of 12th Street around 3 p.m. on Dec. 13 in search of a wanted 21-year-old man. The man took off running after officers identified themselves as police. Cops chased the man, who tried to jump over a fence but didn’t make it. During the arrest, the suspect bit one officer several times in the forearm and was kicking at officers after he was in handcuffs. The suspect was brought to the station and placed in an interview room where he was not cooperative and “became belligerent and assaultive.” He also spit on an officer. The suspect was then taken from the room and restrained. CV
