A Peoria Heights man was robbed at gunpoint about 4 a.m. Friday when his car was stopped at a traffic light at Northeast Jefferson Avenue and Spring Street.
The robber displayed a handgun and ordered the 33-year-old driver to open his door. Police said the driver gave the robber $460 in cash and a cell phone valued at $250.
Police said the gunman fled after an accomplice yelled, “Let’s go, dog.”
Its just another typical day in Peoria. And still the media and new papers refuse to acknowledge that Peoria has a major Nigger problem.
A 50-year-old man was beaten and robbed Saturday evening while walking through the shuttered Harrison Homes.
The victim told police he was walking near the housing complex about 6:30 p.m., when he was approached by five men. One asked him for money, and when he replied he had none they began kicking and punching him, according to a Peoria police report.
The attackers stole his wallet, containing an undisclosed amount of money, his cell phone and his keys. One of the robbers attempted to snatch the man’s boot, but was unsuccessful.
The attack left the man, however, with a broken ankle, and he had to drag himself to a nearby bar to call for help, according to the report. The victim was treated at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center for the broken ankle and released.
He could not give a description of the young men, except that they wore “bling,” the report stated.
No arrests had been made as of Sunday night.
