School Robbery and Assault
Four suspects assaulted and robbed students in two schools, Citrus Grove Middle School and Miami Senior High School. At both schools, the suspects attacked and beat up students, then took their cell phones. The police tracked the four down by the make of the car they were using, which was stolen. When they pulled the car over, they arrested the driver, while the others ran. The rest were found hiding in a house, and were then arrested.
The assaults occurred both in a school hallway and on an outdoor basketball court. Schools are gathering places for students both before and after school. Schools can work with local law enforcement to beef up patrols around schools during these critical times.
