Council Bluffs police were called to Bucky’s Car Wash at 3501 West Broadway in Council Bluffs around 12:50pm Saturday (1/26) for a car jacking that had just occurred.

Officers learned that 34-year-old Ibraham Dirie was vacuuming out his privately owned Happy Cab Van when a man approached him and struck him in the head with his fist.  After assaulting Dirie, the suspect stole the van and fled the scene. The victim was transported to Mercy Hospital with minor head injuries.

A short time later the suspect was apprehended by the Omaha Police Department and was determined to be  52-year-old Ronald Lee Vallq of Omaha. Vallq is being held in Omaha with charges pending from the Council Bluffs Police Department.
