Crime doesn’t stop at the school house door
Kids DO the darnedest things, part #163
La Follette high school, again. 2:01 p.m. Wednesday, October 10: Officers, along with school personnel, met with several juveniles at La Follette H.S. in an attempt to resolve their on-going disputes. The juveniles (all AAFs – ages 15, 17 and 17) did not cooperate and a disturbance broke out. The 15-year-old was conveyed to the Juvenile Reception Center for disorderly conduct. The 17-year-olds were arrested for disorderly conduct.
Strong Armed Robbery – 10:11 p.m. Wednesday, October 10: Officers responded to the 6900 block of Odana Rd for a report of a strong armed robbery. The victim (58-year-old WF) was walking to her vehicle in a parking lot when she was approached by two individuals who told her that her vehicle was damaged. As the victim went to check on her vehicle she was attacked by the two subjects/suspects. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries which required medical attention (possible broken jaw). The victim’s purse, keys and vehicle were stolen from her. Investigation led to the identification and arrest of three juvenile suspects (AAFs), after they were located when they crashed the stolen vehicle. Additional suspects may be involved. Charges are forthcoming. From the police report:

‘The girl kicked her in the head’
“I thought they were going to kill me. I didn’t know what they were going to do,” the sobbing victim told a police officer as she held her husband while being treated for painful facial injuries at an emergency room.
She had been excited about getting off work a bit early, but as she left her job on Odana Rd. she noticed two teenagers – one boy and one girl – hanging around her SUV.
They appeared to have been with other young people who drove a car from the lot, just as she got her vehicle. The boy told her “they hit your car.” Not sure what he was talking about, she inspected her SUV and found a back passenger window smashed out.
Stolen car wrecked
By 1:30 a.m., the victim’s SUV had crashed into a tree in the 1200 block of Seminole Highway. Fitchburg Police officers were able to chase down three of four teens believed to have been inside.
Detectives are trying to determine if the person who got away was the boy who took part in the battery and strong-armed robbery. One of the girls taken into custody is also a suspect in the mugging. She is 13 years old.
