POLICE SEEK INFORMATION ABOUT AGGRAVATED ROBBERY
A man asks to borrow a cell phone and, when he’s denied, he beats and kicks the victim viciously and steals the phone,
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Thursday night Feb. 2, 2012, just before midnight, the suspect walked up to the victim in the parking lot a 7-11 store located at 8701 Alameda and asked to borrow the victim’s cell phone. When the victim declined, the suspect attacked the victim. He beat him to the ground, and continued kicking and beating him causing serious injury to the victim’s face.
The suspect then took the victim’s cell phone and fled the scene. It is not known if the suspect fled in a vehicle or on foot. Because this location is in a heavily traveled part of Alameda near Ysleta High School, investigators believe that someone may have seen the incident happen and possibly can identify the assailant, his vehicle, or where he might have fled.
