MNPD apprehend Sylvan Park armed robbery suspects

The most recent Metro Police employee newsletter shares some disturbing news about an attempted armed robbery in Sylvan Park:
Heads-up police work by West Precinct Flex Officer Steve Parks led to the arrest of two 16-year-olds minutes after the robbery of a Belmont University student.

The 23-year-old female student was jogging on 47th Avenue North near Dakota Avenue at 8 p.m. when the two teenagers, with bandanas over their faces, approached. One of them pulled a pistol and demanded the victim’s belongings. She gave them her cell phone and the suspects fled.

The victim went to a nearby home and quickly called 911. Eight minutes later, Officer Parks had the two teenagers in custody after seeing them running on Dakota toward 43rd Avenue. Elijah Lynn Hall of Alameda Street and Jason Holt of Michigan Avenue were positively identified by the victim. They were charged with aggravated robbery at juvenile detention.
Please report any instances of criminal activity or suspicious behavior that you witness. Call (615) 862-8600 for non-emergencies or 911 in life-threatening situations. Thanks to Doug Eckert for passing along this information.
