The Coons Rapid Crime Prevention has put out a warning and is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of two robbery and assault suspects in the area. These brutal attacks and robberies have occurred in the city over the past two months.
Police are looking for two men in their early twenties who attack their victims from behind and assault and rob them. All of the attacks are similar but are escalating in their attacks. Since March 5th, five people â€“ one woman and four men â€“ have been ambushed, assaulted and robbed. All of the attacks occurred within a half-mile of the intersection of Coons Rapid Blvd. and Hanson Blvd.
The police are asking people not to walk or bike alone after dark in the area and to travel in groups. But most important, be alert!
