Burglary 854 N. Highland Av from Officer’s Narrative:

On January 9, 2017 at approximately 6:31am, police were dispatched to an open door at the Ace Hardware located at 854 N. Highland Ave NE. Upon arrival an officer confirmed that the front door had been smashed out with a brick and it appeared that entry had been gained. Officers spoke with the business owner, who stated that the only item missing appeared to be a pair of cotton gloves that were offered for sale at $2.49.

The brick used to break the glass also destroyed a Big Green Egg grill offered for sale at $400. Owner stated that the business does have an alarm but it appeared that the alarm had not been set when the business last closed. There were no cameras at the business. A crime scene unit took photographs and dusted for prints.

Robbery on Greenwood Av from Officer’s Narrative:

On January 14, 2017 police were dispatched to a robbery that happened on the 700-block of Greenwood Ave NE on the sidewalk.  Two female victims were walking home from one of the bars on Ponce De Leon Ave NE. The route they took was North on Ponce De Leon Pl NE and then East on Greenwood Ave NE toward their apartment.  Victims showed police the exact incident location and there was blood on the side walk from victim 2's laceration. They advised they take this route all the time.

Victim 1 advised they saw 3 black males talking (suspects). She advised that they were all three young probably around 20 years old. She advised that the males were attractive and she did not feel threatened when she first saw them. They continued walking and one of the males walked up to them holding a hand gun. He told them to get down on the ground. The victims then sat on the sidewalk. Victim 2 advised she remained as calm as she could and they did as they were told. Victim 1 advised the male with the gun hit her with the bottom of the gun grip. She was struck on the left side of her forehead below the hair line. She had a large visible knot on her forehead. She advised she was struck after the males had already taken her purse from her.

Victim 2 advised that the male with the gun struck her also with the bottom of the grip of the gun. She had a laceration on the left side of her forehead below the hair line. Her laceration was bleeding heavily and her face and clothing were covered with blood. Victim 2 advised the male then ripped her dress. It was an ankle length dress and I could see that it had been ripped from the hem to the bottom of her groin area. Victim 2 advised that she feared that she was going to be raped, but the male did not say anything to imply it, nor did he touch her in any sexual manner. She told the male there was no need in that and gave him the rings off of her hands. The males then left running West on Greenwood Ave NE then South on Ponce De Leon Pl NE. The females then proceeded home and asked a neighbor to call 911.

Police gave a description of the suspects over the radio and had units check the area. The males were described as young black males dressed nicely. Victims advised their clothing was darkly colored. Victims advised that they could not pick them out of a line up and did not have any further description of the males. Both victim's purses were stolen. Victim 1's purse was a small black purse, with her identification, credit cards, Apple iPhone, and her rings were stolen. She advised her rings were not very valuable. Victim 2's purse was also a small black purse with her identification, credit cards, Apple iPhone in it. Victim 2's rings were stolen also, she advised they were also not very valuable. We tried tracking both phones, but the phones appeared to be turned off. Victim 1 advised she would keep trying with her iPad to track the phones. There are no APD Video Integration Center cameras on Greenwood Ave in that area. I could not see any cameras on the outside of the houses at the incident location.  Paramedics treated the two victims at the scene and they declined to be transported to the hospital.
