December 4, 2013

2300 mile of Highland Acres Road - Marshall County authorities are investigating a reported robbery incident that occurred late afternoon of Friday, November 29th, 2013, between 5:30pm and about 6:20pm, in the 2300 mile of Highland Acres Road.

Police, Sheriff and EMS personnel responded to the scene after two passersby found a woman lying unconscious on the ground behind her vehicle,( an older Dodge pickup), on the shoulder of the road. The victim had sustained trauma/blows to the head and was transported by MAPS to the Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center, where she was treated and later released that evening.

The victim reported seeing a vehicle stranded in the traveled portion of Highland Acres Road, and stopped to help push the vehicle off the road. A male passenger got out of the suspect vehicle and assaulted the victim. The victim's pickup truck was gone through and sacks of merchandise were taken. These items were from shopping earlier in the day in Marshalltown.

The male suspect is described as being Hispanic or darker skinned, about 30 years of age, with dark hair and a mustache, medium height and build, and was wearing a dark ballcap and dark jacket.

The female suspect is described as being white, also about 30 years of age, dark hair pulled back, heavy build and medium height.

The only description of the suspect vehicle given is that it was a darker blue or black car, in good shape. No other distinguishing features were given.

This case remains under investigation. Anyone traveling along Highland Acres Road during that day and time, that would have seen anything suspicious, or anyone who has information about this case, is urged to contact the Marshall County Sheriff's Office at 641 754-6380, or the Communications Center at 641 754-5725. The Sheriff's Office is also advising citizens to use caution in making decisions regarding the assisting of apparent stranded motorists or pedestrians in such situations, especially in remote areas. Citizens are reminded that they can call in to the Comm Center or dial 911 if need be, to have an officer or deputy check on the stranded motorist, rather than leave their own vehicle.
