3 charged in violent Edina, Minneapolis robberies

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Two juveniles and an adult have been charged in a series of robberies in Minneapolis and Edina, including one attack so violent it nearly killed a man.

The Hennepin County attorney's office announced charges Tuesday against 18-year-old Navarr Ross, 16-year old Antonio Timberlake and an unnamed 13-year-old. All three were charged with three counts of aggravated robbery stemming from incidents in March.

THE ATTACKS

March 16
Xerxes Avenue S. and W. 56th St.

An Edina man stepped off a Metro Transit bus around midnight and was followed by the suspects. The man was robbed of his satchel, which included a pocket knife that belonged to his grandfather and a phone. The man was hit on the head and stabbed in an artery in his neck, nearly killing him.

March 26
Xerxes Avenue S. and W. 58th St

The suspects ran up to a man exiting the bus, tripped him and demanded money. When the victim got to his feet, they tackled him, punched and kicked him in the face and stabbed him in the ribs. Doctors said he had a punctured lung and could have died if he waited any longer for treatment.

March 30
Southdale Center parking lot

The suspects confronted three juveniles in the mall parking lot and threatened to break one the kid's legs if he didn't hand over his cell phone and wallet. The suspects fled, but were located by police and arrested.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA

"Every MTC bus has a camera on it," said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman. "If people are dumb enough to commit a crime on the bus, or right after they get the bus, we got you on camera."

Each count of aggravated robbery comes with the possibility of 20 years in jail and a $35,000 fine.

PUBLIC MEETING

Minneapolis authorities and members of the Hennepin County attorney's office will attend a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to discuss these robberies and crime in general. The meeting is at Armatage Community Center, 2500 W. 57th Street.
