Council Bluffs Robbery on Friday


December 8th, 2012 by Chris Parks

An employee of Mid American Auto was approached and robbed by two men in all black clothing at 20 S. 15th Street in Council Bluffs on Friday.  The victim was locking the gates when he was approached by two men, one of which had a handgun.  The robbers demanded he give them his wallet.  The employee attempted to struggle with the suspect holding the gun when the suspect struck him in the face.  The victim then cooperated and turned over his wallet.

The two suspects then fled to S. 15th Street and 2nd Avenue where a white car pulled up and allowed the two men to get in and escape West on 2nd Avenue.
