Three followups tonight: Arraignment today for the three men charged in a street-robbery spree that ended in Arbor Heights almost three weeks ago. As reported here August 26th, 22-year-old Hassan I. Abdirizak, 19-year-old Abdulkamir A. Ahmed, and 21-year-old Najib A. Aden are each charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and one count of attempted first-degree robbery. Each pleaded not guilty; one asked for a bail reduction, which was denied, so each suspect remains jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail.
We also followed up with police today on two incidents we covered this weekend, each fairly thin on details at the time:
31ST SW, SATURDAY AFTERNOON: (our original item here) The report says this came in as two calls, from a man and woman, both claiming to have been injured, with a knife involved somehow, and that’s why it was originally an “assault with weapons” call. In the end, it seemed neither had actually been stabbed – they had argued, and one put the other in a headlock, which the other tried to escape by biting that person. Questioned by police, both told conflicting stories of how they had met a few days earlier, though each story made mention of methamphetamine use, according to the report. Eventually they were transported to different hospitals to be checked out.
32ND SW, FRIDAY NIGHT: (our original item here) The police report says this was called in just after 7 pm Friday as a 37-year-old man face down on his living-room floor and having “seizure-like activity,” similar to an incident reported six days earlier. The family said he tested positive for methamphetamine during that earlier incident. Firefighter/medics arriving at the scene Friday night found the man semi-conscious; as they tried to take his blood pressure, he swung a fist and then kicked at them, so they called for police backup. Officers arrived, tried to get the man under control, but he went limp and stopped breathing, the report says. Firefighters started CPR; the man was eventually taken to the hospital. The report says prescription drugs and marijuana were found in the house.
