Multiple robberies: Between Aug. 14 and 17, there were four reported strong-arm robberies along Lincoln Way in the vicinities of 47th Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive. All four occurred between 8 and 9:30 p.m. The victims were male adult pedestrians. In each robbery, a group of six young males physically assaulted the victims and took their property. A similar robbery occurred there at 10:20 p.m. Aug. 20, but several witnesses observed the incident, followed the robbers and led officers directly to where three suspects could be arrested.

Crime wave halted: For several weeks, citizens complained of an auto burglary outbreak near the children’s playground in the Stowe Lake area. Night-shift plainclothes officers came in at noon and hid in the bushes. At 3:45 p.m. Aug. 17, they saw the suspect approach a vehicle. Within seconds he broke the car window and removed the GPS. He then jumped into his own car and drove off, but was intercepted within a short distance. Numerous other stolen items were found in his car.

Double stabbing: A suspect got into an argument with his roommates in a 2702 Mission St. apartment building at 10 p.m. Aug. 18 and stabbed one roommate numerous times.
