On the 2900 block of 12th Avenue South, an 18 year old male physically knocked down a 33 year old pregnant woman and ripped the purse from her grasp. Witnesses saw this and gave chase of the suspect. Others called 911 and helped the victim.
The witnesses lost sight of the suspect. Minneapolis Police Department 3rd Precinct officers arrived quickly and set up a perimeter. Officers located the suspect, still in possession of some of the victim’s property.
The victim and several of the witnesses positively identified the suspect as the man who had assaulted and robbed the pregnant woman.
He was booked into the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center on the charges of PC Robbery of Person.
