Incident Report for Case #2019-476982

Incident Type

Robbery

Incident Date

11/18/2019 - 1:49 AM

Address

675 S. Whitney Way (Hy-Vee)

Details

Early this morning, two boys walked into the Hy-Vee, 675 S. Whitney Way, with the oldest walking behind the tobacco product sales counter. A 68-year-old clerk estimated one child was about 12, with the other being around 10. "Come on, hook us up," said one boy. The employee told the children they were much too young to purchase nicotine products. With that, the older boy grabbed four boxes of JUUL products. He pushed the clerk to the floor, causing her to injure her wrist. The boys ran off. MPD will be reviewing store surveillance video with hopes of identifying them. There is probable cause to arrest the older one for strong armed robbery and battery to an elderly person
