On Saturday at 12:33 a.m., a husband and wife, both 28 years old, were walking back to their car near 20th and Capp after going to nightclub. The husband was walking slightly ahead of his wife and suddenly heard yelling from behind. When he turned around, he saw his wife struggling with a 22-year-old woman over the wife’s phone.
The husband tried to intervene between the two and the suspect dropped the phone on the ground, at which point the wife grabbed it and called the police. The husband then let go of the suspect and walked away from her, but he was followed by the suspect, who pulled out a stun gun and shocked the husband twice.
Police responded to the call and found the husband on the ground with the suspect next to him. They detained the suspect and booked him for robbery and resisting arrest. The husband suffered some abrasions but was not transported to the hospital, and all property was recovered.
Two Phone Robberies
On Friday morning at 8:05 a.m., a 15-year-old male was walking out of a store near 24th and York when he was pushed in the chest by a man in his early 20s. The suspect then reached into the victim’s pocket and took his phone before getting in a dark colored sedan and fleeing eastbound on 24th Street.
A few hours later at 11:35 a.m., a 66-year-old woman was standing on the sidewalk near 16th and Hoff using her phone when a man in his late 20s or early 30s rode by on a bicycle and snatched her phone, pedaling down Hoff Street fleeing eastbound on 17th Street.
