Unit Block of W. Greenwood Ave. – This officer was on routine patrol when I did interrupt an assault/attempted robbery on W. Greenwood Ave. I observed several subjects running through the driveway of a home on W. Greenwood traveling north. I was then approached by victim who advised that the subjects that had just fled had mugged him. I radioed a police vehicle to pick up the victim and requested additional units to search for the actors. Assisting officers chased the three actors through several back yards. Eventually two of the three actors involved were apprehended within 2 to 3 blocks of the area where the crime occurred. The victim was able to positively identify the two listed offenders taken into custody. The victim did provide a hand written statement when he was transported back to police headquarters. He indicated that the three offenders came up behind him while he was out walking his dog, as he does almost every night. The victim also stated that Offender #1 initiated the assault when he asked the victim if he had change for a quarter, followed immediately by a punch to the victims’ right ear. When the victim tired to defend himself the other offenders joined in on the assault. All three offenders repeatedly punched and kicked the victim and were laughing while doing so. This officer did take digital photographs of the injuries to the victim. The apprehended offenders were transported out to the juvenile detention center and turned over to the detention center supervisor. If the third offender is identified he will also be charged.
