On Monday afternoon just before 2:30, police were dispatched to a report of a robbery on the 3200 block of Bloomington Avenue South.

A Minneapolis Crime Watch page contemporaneously posted about the robbery report and said that an Amazon driver was fighting with three suspects.

Recorded police dispatch audio indicated that several squads responded to the area to locate the victim and look for suspects.

According to the dispatch audio, the suspects were described as four to five black male teens who pulled a gun on the driver. One was wearing a Chicago Bulls cap backward, a silver chain and a black hoodie, age 17, medium build, 5’11.” Another one, who tried to punch the driver, was wearing a dark hoodie, 5’8” and 140 lbs. Other audio said that some were wearing gray hoodies, and one in a black and white hat and striped shirt. The suspects fled on foot and possibly got into a vehicle.

According to the audio, the suspects took several packages as well as the driver’s cell phone(s).. 

The dispatch audio doesn’t indicate whether any suspects were apprehended and an inquiry to the Minneapolis Police Department was not returned before publication.
