Around 2:45pm on Friday, EPD was called on scene to Outdoor Creations on the 2200 block of Morgan Avenue for a robbery. The caller stated that she and a witness were at outside of the business when she realized that an SUV was taking her husband's trailer.

The victim followed the SUV to the Dollar General on 2250 East Morgan Avenue. There, she stated she began to take pictures of the vehicle. The suspect got out of the car and confronted her. The victim then said the suspect got back into the SUV to drive away, hitting the victim with the trailer. The victim suffered an abrasion on her left elbow.

Witnesses say they last saw the vehicle turning west on Morgan Avenue.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
