Minneapolis Crime of the Week

One reason to not carry around $3000 in cash is you never know when someone you know is going to decide to smash your eye socket with a bottle:

1600 blk 6th St S: Officers responded to Aggravated Robbery call in Cedar-Riverside area; suspect (known to victim) followed victim from bar, demanded money; victim refused; suspect hit victim in face with bottle, breaking nose, injuring eye socket; suspect robbed victim of $3K; victim positively identified: suspect: Arrested/
CID investigating


1400 blk Jefferson NE: Victims approached by unknown youth, robbed at gunpoint; suspects went through victim’s pockets looking for items; victims then ordered to remove their clothes; suspects then fled on foot

If you watched the local news this past week, you’re very familiar with how this 4-year old’s life ended:

3100 blk Morgan Av N: Initially reported as missing 4-yr-old child walked out of house; story changed to child removed from house by acquaintance; precinct squads, STOP, K9 conducted yard searches, canvassed neighborhood, checked bus stations, interviewed child’s father in Work House, called family in MN, Chicago; from Weds to Sun officers diligently searched for missing child until notified child found deceased at house; suspect’s children transported to St Joseph’s: Arrested/MURDER (Homicide Unit below)

I think there may be better ways to settle arguments than this, South Tigers:

Hiawatha/Lake ST E: Officers heard single gunshot in area of LRT station; located uncooperative juvenile victim of gunshot wound, transported to HCMC; officers canvassed area to locate witnesses; juvenile witnesses to apparent fight between classmates uncooperative
Juvenile Unit investigating

Ladies, look out for this guy:

3rd Precinct: The total rate of violent crime has increased by 25% this week, though still down by 8% for the year. Officers have noted a pattern in robberies: women walking on the street by themselves were approached from behind by suspect described by witnesses as black male, forced to ground, robbed of money. Property crimes have seen an 18% decrease this year; burglaries decreased by a third this week.
