:::: UPDATE :::: U of M student recounts violent Hennepin/University robbery from hospital

Just after midnight this morning, two 21-year-old women were walking when they were robbed and stabbed near the intersection of Hennepin and University Avenues in Northeast.

The suspect, who one eyewitness describes to us as a "rather heavyset, kinda fat African American," fled the scene and is still on the loose. The two victims were sent to the hospital, where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries, Minneapolis Police Department spokesman Scott Seroka tells us.

The eyewitness says he was leaving work when he heard he screams. He "ran toward them, turned the corner around Bruegger's" and saw "a large African American man holding a Caucasian woman in a headlock."

"I thought, I'm not trained to deal with this situation, so I ducked back around the corner, called 911, and directed the paramedics and police there," the witness says.

After the suspect fled, the witness approached the victims. A broken knife blade was on the ground, along with strewn cell phones, the witness says.

"The smaller woman was clutching her arm and there was a lot of blood coming out of it," he adds. "Her friend gave her a shirt [to help stop the bleeding] and it appeared she had some sort of blood smear on her back, but she had actually been stabbed in the back."

The witness says the victim with the more severe arm injury was "conscious, breathing heavily, [and] very alert" after the stabbing.

Asked what he said to the victims while they waited for authorities, the witness says, "We mostly sat in sort of panicked, shocked silenced."

"The first victim with the arm wound, she was sitting up, breathing heavily, trying to apply pressure with clothes to her arm," he says. "Her friend was laying down on the ground, she was conscious as well I believe."

The witness says his recollections are fragmented.

thats right there by Brugers, its not lonely, not by a long shot. but there is a lot of foot traffic and a lot of thugs hit ppl up for money thinking that the student population is both vulnerable and easy prey.

I can guarantee suspect came from 3rd ave. all things evil lead back to franklin and that area. Perfect point of egress from the shadows of the park to that dark alleyway there. Sad it happened but am glad they're ok!

I was out at the same intersection with my girlfriend at 11:30. It's a main intersection, not a "lonely place." Must be nice to know all the answers though!

So what kind of monster stabs two women.   Understand this causes trauma.  The PTSD kind of trauma.  It may stay with these women their entire lives.  This was a purposeful premeditated attack.

For what?  A cell phone?   A couple of bucks?  We're just racist white people.

mike jones, I think it is because originally this was a separate town, St. Anthony and it was the SE end of St. Anthony, but now it is Minneapolis and it is the Near North East part of that. They probably had the streets named prior to combining.

The witness said: "I'm a big pussy so I hid around the corner while fat Albert robbed a couple ladies."

Wow, wth? What happened to people carrying mace and those little sound things that make a loud noise. Even a really bright little flashlight may have temporarily blinded him.

Why the area that's slightly north and slightly east of downtown would ever be considered SE has always confused me. But anyways, that area used to be a separate city, so all the streets are askew and the address directionals are vestigial.

More black on white crime, and about 800,000 more black on white crimes have and still will occur before the end of the year. Look up the facts on race and crime. This is the only civil rights issue. White people need to start looking out for their own.

Yeah, like I am sure he gave them plenty of warning so they had time to pull out whatever little device the may have had, robbers are often very considerate that way. Its not like they surprise you or anything....

Because the dividing line between northeast and southeast was set as East Hennepin over a century ago.

@NewShowOnBET @senatortombstone  Well they and just about any reasonable person would think you're a racist bigot...but hey, who am I to grasp at straws..


Besides, I figure even someone who has mild segregationist rhetoric would still have an issue with supporting "gang-like" activity among white people. You really think that's the next logical step? To form our own "white" gang to combat "the blacks", all 800,000 of them? Look, all I'm saying is it doesn't take a snarky liberal to see how completely stupid and awful statements like the ones above me come off as.

categorizing people based on race and their perceived actions/agenda is what nazis do

interracial breeding is all the rage these days

@mingtran  No, you said that. Most hicks are harmless, most gun-owners are hard-working law-abiding citizens, lots of white folks are good people. It's OK to discriminate against racist anti-government assholes like yourself. I have no problem with that at all.

DP says only HICKS, GUN OWNERS, and WHITE FOLKS are okay to discriminate against. Everyone else deserves special treatment.

not surpised that he cant come up with his own set of belief or values.


hes morally corrupt. he thinks he has some inherent value because he pays taxes and has a job. 


i wish he would share his "supreme" occupation so we can laugh at how useless he is

@digitalprotocol  "you want kids to starve?  should we do away with all social programs?"

If you can't feed 'em - don't breed 'em. 

I can see helping someone out for a year or two - but not 5 - 10 - 20 - lifetime.  I'm sure you have read that a baby mama of two - get's over $75,000 worth of benefits:  Section 8, SNAP, MnCare, etc. 

And then they become disabled....

Anything you subsidize you get more of.   Think about the cost of higher ed or medicine.  Who drives those costs?   Unlimited government loans and the insurance racket.

@NewShowOnBET ya, thats why detroit failed...because of their suburban population?

@Truth_Teller_1 @digitalprotocol  Google Jared Taylor or The New Century Foundation.  You are cut and pasting your information from a proven racist website.  


Here is some info from the CDC:

  • Drugs. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, among youths aged 12 to 17, the rate of current illicit drug use was 11.1 % among whites, and 9.3% among African Americans. [5] In a previous year, the same survey found that white youth aged 12 to17 are more than a third more likely to have sold drugs than African American youth. [6] The Monitoring the Future Survey of high school seniors shows that white students annually use cocaine at 4.6 times the rate of African Americans students, use crack cocaine at 1.5 times the rate of African Americans students, and use heroin at the same rate of African Americans students, and that white youth report annual use of marijuana at a rate 46% higher than African American youth.[7] However African American youth are arrested for drug offenses at about twice the rate (African American 314 per 100,000, white 175 per 100,000) times that of whites,[8] and African American youth represent nearly half (48%) of all the youth incarcerated for a drug offense in the juvenile justice system. [9]
  • Weapons. According to the Center on Disease Control's annual Youth Risk Behavior Survey, in 2001 whites and African Americans reported similar rates of carrying a weapon (whites 17.9%, African Americans 15.2%), and similar rates of carrying a gun (whites 5.5%, and African Americans, 6.5%). [10] African American youth represent 32% of all weapons arrests, and were arrested for weapons offenses at a rate twice that of whites (69 per 100,000, versus 30 per 100,000). [11]
  • Assault. According to the Center on Disease Control's annual Youth Risk Behavior Survey, African Americans report being in a physical fight at a similar rate (36.5%, versus 32.5% for whites), but were arrested for aggravated assault at a rate nearly three times that of whites (137 per 100,000, versus 48 per 100,000).

@digitalprotocol  If it weren't for the educated suburbanites who work in Minneapolis, the whole city would look like Detroit.

@NewShowOnBET thats incorrect. the suburbs are chocked full of section 8 housing and SNAP recipients 


Cities are cultural and educational centers. Cities ALWAYS have more educated and refined citizens than rural america


it has been like this since the dawn of civilization


the second ring suburbs lack common sense and culture, they are bubbles where people unrealistically fear urban violence...like you

@digitalprotocol

Letting kids starve may seem cruel, but there are too many people on this Earth and not enough resources to support them. This is why God (or Karma or whatever you believe in) created AIDS and cancer. It's nature's way of population control.

@Truth_Teller_1  why do you think money is a solution to everything? why do you think you contribute to society?  by paying taxes?


you want kids to starve?  should we do away with all social programs?


should we just subsidize big business?  


do you know about a thing called critical thinking

@digitalprotocol You do realize that the majority of people who live in the city of Minneapolis are neither educated nor refined.  The educated and refined people who work in downtown Minneapolis live out in the suburbs.

If it isn't then let's stop paying for SNAP, Section 8 and MNCare, and ........  cause they don't need the money.   Right?

Oh yeah, they need our money.

@digitalprotocol Federal Stats (just Google it)

"Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery."
