One arrested, one sought in Norfolk robbery-assault
One Norfolk man is in custody and another is being sought for the robbery and assault of a man Tuesday outside of a grocery store/restaurant at 116 W. Norfolk Ave.
Capt. Don Miller with the Norfolk Police Division said officers responded to the Tienda Leon parking lot just after 6 p.m. to a report of an adult male bleeding heavily from his head and having had teeth knocked out.
It was also determined that the victim’s wallet was missing.
The victim was transported to Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk for treatment. He told officers he had just left the business when two male suspects approached him to start a fight.
The victim said that when he tried to leave in his vehicle, the two suspects blocked his exit, Miller said.
When the victim exited his vehicle to ask them to move, they attacked him with punches and kicked him while on the ground.
The suspects, who the victim did not know, then fled the scene.
During the investigation, officers obtained descriptions of the suspects and executed two search warrants, during which evidence was obtained, Miller said.
The suspects were identified as Angel Villalobos, 25, and Jose Tamayo, 32, both of Norfolk.
Villalobos was located and arrested for robbery and first-degree assault. He was booked into the Norfolk City Jail and later transported to the Madison County Jail.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Tamayo with the same charges.
Anyone with information on the location of Tamayo is asked to call the Norfolk Police Division at 402-644-8700.
