Samoa may be an exotic place, but we have our share of the unbelievable too. Below are some crime reports published in our local Southwest Minneapolis newspaper.

An unknown suspect allegedly robbed and assaulted a 33-year-old woman. The victim was walking home from a bar when the suspect punched her in the face five or six times, causing a bloody nose, and then stole her purse. Police checked the victim's probation status and found the woman to be in violation of her fourth degree assault probation by consuming alcohol. She was arrested and transported to Hennepin County Jail.

Two unknown suspects allegedly robbed and assaulted a 35-year-old man. The victim had been walking along when the suspects kicked him in the knee, knocking him to the ground. The suspects then went through the victim's pockets and stole $120 in cash before kicking him in the back multiple times. The victim described the suspects as two white males, but stated that he would be unable to later identify them. Paramedics at the scene were unable to locate the alleged injury.

April 9, 12:17-12:45 am
A 57-year-old man picked up two women, a 28-year-old and a 22-year-old, to perform sex for money.
