  •  On 4/12/16 at 10:35 pm, the victim was sitting in front of the apartments at 1000 Claudia Ct. when she was approached by two male adults.  One of the males pointed a hand gun at her demanding her property. The victim’s purse was ripped from her grip by the responsibles.  They walked away with her property and told the victim she will be shot if she did not run away. The victim complied with the demands and ran home where she contacted police.


  •  On 4/12/16 at 10:30 pm, a home owner arrived home from work and as she exited her vehicle on Aster Dr., she was approached by a female adult.  As her attention was drawn toward the female, an adult male approached her from the opposite direction and pointed a handgun at her face.  The female pushed the victim to the ground, kicked her in the back, and took her purse, cell phone and car keys.  The male pulled the victim away from the vehicle by the hair and the responsibles got into the victim’s vehicle.  The responsibles stole the victim’s vehicle but abandoned it a short distance away due to the vehicle tires locking from the emergency brake which was still applied.  The responsibles fled on foot toward W 10th St.  We attempted to ping the victim’s cell phone but the phone had been powered off. The case is still under investigation.

He told officers he was able to knock out one of the shooters but would not talk anymore about the incident because he lives a “different lifestyle.” There were no leads or suspect descriptions. The scene could not be located.


  • On 4/12/16 at 8:03 am, 36 year old Rashita Boykin drove to Carmen Dragon Elementary today to drop her child off at school. Boykin drove in the parking lot and ran over some cones that were set out by the school staff to keep the flow of cars smooth during morning drop off. The principal approached Boykin at her car door as she was parked in a stall. It appears they had a verbal disagreement about Boykin’s driving. Boykin attempted to leave the lot and her open driver’s door bumped the principal, knocking him to the ground. Both sides had conflicting views of the incident. A traffic collision report was taken.  Boykin had a suspended driver’s license and no insurance. She was cited and her vehicle was impounded.

One of the victims recognized one of the responsibles as someone who he used to attend high school with. Two minutes prior to this robbery, the same responsibles are believed to have robbed two people at Country Manor Park nearby. Both cases are still under investigation.
