Update: Suspects in custody after robbery/assault near 16th/Roxbury

10:44 PM: Big police search/containment right now near 16th/Roxbury, and beyond. We don’t have full details but they’re seeking three people in connection with what sounded like a street robbery/assault. The victim is injured. You’re likely to hear/see the Guardian One helicopter join the search. More as we get it.

10:55 PM: Per scanner, police have detained two possible suspects a few blocks south of where the robbery/assault happened.

11:00 PM: And now the third suspect is reported to be in custody.

WEDNESDAY MORNING P.S. We’re following up with SPD in hopes of getting more details, and will add when/if we get them.

    Thanks for the news! Once again, I can trust to find out what’s going on in my neighborhood through WSB!!

  • Foucault October 28, 2014 (11:30 pm)

    Any updates on the nature of and circumstances surrounding the assault?

    • WSB October 28, 2014 (11:33 pm)

      Nope. Not likely to get that until the written report is available tomorrow.

    Was this handled by KCSO or SPD?

    • WSB October 29, 2014 (12:28 am)

      SPD’s case, I believe, originating on this side of the line.

  • Nick October 29, 2014 (5:42 am)

    Glad they got them. Good job spd and kcso

    Is it just me or does anyone else dislike the word “perps”?

    I know it’s an abbreviation but it just bugs me! LOL!!!

    I, for one, like derogatory names for criminals.
    There is little other satisfaction than calling them names. Those suspects, as you would prefer, are probably already back out on the streets waiting to prey on the next unlucky person. Realize that a person was injured and they are definitely feeling low. The suspects, on the other hand, are unlikely to face significant punishment unless they have 20 priors. So in my mind, demeaning the suspects is fair game.

    Eric1>>>Like I said it’s just me not liking the word perps, sounds too much like burps! :) But yes I agree with you they should be called demeaning names and yep probably already out doing their crimes again…geez get a job like everyone else.

Sorry, comment time is over.
