Robberies of Persons May 19, 2006

St. Anthony East Neighborhood


In recent weeks, we have had several individuals robbed in the St. Anthony East neighborhood.

On May 10 at about 9:45 p.m., suspects assaulted a woman in the park at Jefferson and Spring and took her wallet.
On May 14 at 3:45 p.m. in the 400 block of 5th St. NE, suspects assaulted a woman and took her purse.
On May 15 at about 8:00 p.m. at 4th St. NE and 6th Ave. NE, suspects on bikes assaulted an elderly victim and took his wallet.
Suspect information:

There is limited suspect information and the descriptions are not the same. In two of the incidents, there were two suspects involved. In the third, there were more than two people involved.
These are not late night robberies, nor is it a "bad" area.

Who are these criminal scum terrorizing our city?
