Man Robbed And Beaten In Broad Daylight

Posted by wlpo on August 15, 2012

Typically you feel safe walking in La Salle and Peru at 11 in the morning, but that wasn’t the case for a man who was mugged along the city-limits.

Police have arrested two teens they say robbed a 39 year old man on July 7th near 7th and Chicago Streets.  Peru Police accuse 17 year old Jeffery Hankerson of Ottawa of attacking the man while a 16 year old boy from Peru watched.  The man was left with injuries to his head and face but didn’t want to go to the hospital.

The younger boy was arrested on a youth warrant for robbery while Hankerson was arrested for felony robbery.

Peru and La Salle Police Departments worked on the investigation.
