For the second time this week, a Missonite awoke to the sound of someone in her apartment who did not belong there. Police refer to this as a “hot prowl.”
This one occurred at 6:40 a.m. Wednesday on 17th Street near Harrison Street. The victim woke up to find the suspect going through her belongings in her living room. He grabbed his backpack and fled – with multiple laptop computers and tablets.
No arrests have been made. Again, police warn residents against confronting the suspect and either getting into a secure place in the apartment to call 911 or leaving the apartment to call 911.
At 12:30 a.m. today a 21-year-old on 24th Street near Bryant was approached by four men of around the same age. One of the suspects placed a knife on the victim’s neck while the others punched and kicked the victim. The suspects took off on foot with the victim’s wallet and some cash. No arrests have been made.
The victim was being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
