Thursday, November 29, 2012

Nevada Daily Mail

A woman reported having been knocked down by two men who then made off with her tablet-style computer Nov. 27, and police are looking for witnesses to the crime.

At about 8:15 p.m., Tuesday, a 49-year-old Kansas woman called police to report a crime, saying that she was accosted by two men on the Wal-Mart parking lot, 2250 E. Lincoln Ave., who reportedly stole a Motion brand computer, "tablet," that she was carrying after knocking her to the ground. The victim's black carrying case was recovered by the victim on the street north of Wal-Mart, a press release issued Wednesday said.

The victim described the suspects as two men dressed in dark clothing with their heads covered by hoods, who fled in an unknown direction. An area search was conducted by police to no avail; and as of Wednesday afternoon, no witnesses had come forward to assist authorities.

Nevada Police Sgt. Jeff Baker said, "Store management is working with us to secure all possible evidence along with providing store surveillance video."

Anyone with information on possible suspects or who had witnessed the reported crime is encouraged to contact the Nevada Police Department at (417) 448-5100 or use the Tip Hotline (417) 448 - 5117.
