Update from MPD:
On Wednesday, June 27, 2012, at approximately 7:15 the adult victim met up with the suspect in order to sell an expensive item. The adult male suspect looked over the expensive item and then punched the victim in the face with a closed fist. The suspect then grabbed the item and fled the scene.
Today at approximately 7:37, the suspect in this Robbery was stopped by members of the Third District Robbery Tactical Unit. A short time later a positive identification was made and the suspect was arrested for Robbery Force and Violence.
The victim sustained minor injuries to his face and was treated by the Ambulance. Unfortunately the expensive item was not recovered at the time of the suspect’s arrest.
This is a safety reminder, when selling expensive items over the internet please meet the intended buyer in a safe and public space!!
