Cases go cold, but the file stays open.
West Point Police Department Chief of Investigations Albert Lee recalls an armed robbery case which took place in May.
According to an incident report provided by Lee, officers were dispatched to the North Mississippi Medical Center during the evening of May 26 in reference to a possible armed robbery.
Lee said the victim reported the offender was a “slender built” black male clothed in “dark attire.” Upon getting out of his vehicle, the victim reported the offender approached him, pointed a firearm at him and demanded money.
The report indicates the victim refused to comply with the burglar; in response, the offender reportedly “hit him in the face with the gun” which in turn produced a “large gash.” The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of the head wound.
