Police Say Teen Girls Responsible for Recent Robberies

Aristea Brady, CBS Minnesota, November 1, 2012

A series of brazen robberies by suspects you might not expect has caused police to issue a crime alert on the University of Minnesota campus.

There’s been a total of four robberies in the past couple weeks near the campus.

Police say they believe in two of the cases, a pair of teenage girls are responsible for assaulting students in an attempt to steal their cell phones.

Eighteen-year-old Odessa Richmond was booked at Hennepin County Jail last weekend.

The other girl’s name isn’t being released because she’s not eighteen.


“They were going after iPhones and they would approach students and ask to use their phone, and when the students refuse, they would up the issue and eventually assault them and steal their phones,” said Deputy Chief Chuck Miner of the U of M Police Department.

Police say the robbers went as far as grabbing a plastic chair to hit the victim. A week later, police think the girls were at it again. {snip}

“It occurred in a very populated area, near a bus stop, in fact,” Deputy Miner said. “A bunch of citizens got off the bus, saw what was happening, intervened, helped stop the assault and the robbery.”

The two were caught by police a few buildings away. {snip}


Richmond was also arrested a couple weeks ago for a robbery in Bloomington.

  • I wonder if Minnesotans have awaken yet. Did they really not like it when all the people there looked like their ancestors came from Sweden, Norway and Germany? Has the reality of the hypocrisy of modern liberal diversity sunk in yet?  I hope they wake up soon.

      I think Minnesotans are too brain dead anymore through massive Die-versity training.   They will just go on believing that it’s the teen yoots civil duty to rob, rape and murder and White they wish to… you know, because of SLAVERY!

  • Biff_Maliboo

    Just more Diversity Tax collecting…

  • Wow, look at the comments on the original article. People are waking up!

  • “Teen” is becoming a ‘dog-whistle’ euphemism for ‘young black thug’. 
    Or, what the Brits refer to as ‘yobs’.

    • What, the MSM don’t use “yoofs” anymore?

      • Not as much ….. people started to figure out what it meant.

    • I prefer the term, “Teenaper.” Moderator in 3..2.1..

      I came here to say what you just said. I wish we weren’t so frightened of saying it “out loud”. The bolsheviks really did a number on us years ago, and were also a great disservice to the blacks convincing them that whites needed to be punished for the slavery “they” did before their grandfather was born. I have reason to believe they also sold the blacks this “hip hop/thug” culture through the “bolshevik” owned music and media industry to bolster this criminal as celebrity ideal. I really do.

    This wouldn’t have happened if the Whiteys in Minnesota were doing more to UnDo their UnFair White privilege.   

    Blacks are crying out for us to do the right thing, and we refuse.  Their violence is regrettable, but understandable.  If it pushes us forward, then we will agree later that we needed their help more than we realized at the time.

    look a diverse black man just choked a qeorgetown jogger out and when she woke up he was sexually assaulting her.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VWTLbxX0XE

       I wonder what she did to lead him on?

  • Barrack Osama

    “You might not expect”? I see exactly what I expected to.

  • puffdaddy

    Are they Somali or native born Americans?

  • IstvanIN

    a pair of teenage girls are responsible for assaulting students

    Correction: a pair of feral female primates.

    It was exactly what I expected, looking at the photo only confirmed it.

    What do you think she’ll look like after 20 years??

    The females of the species seem to be emulating the males.   The response should be the same, gunfire.  If not legal where you live then something like a blackjack works nicely.   

  • JohnEngelman

    Why can’t they write, “black teen girls?” 

    • Because most Americans haven’t the testicular fortitude to handle the truth.

    • Sloppo

      The terms “black”, “teen”, and “youth” have identical meaning when used to refer to perpetrators of violent crime.  

  • Perp’s name is “Odessa”? Enough said.

    • IstvanIN

       Odessa, NY is 96% white, which shows how desperate they are to be us.

      • Integration Anxiety

        And I’m guessing Odessa, Texas is not 96% White, but I get your point. Meanwhile a black running back in the NFL named Arian Foster. I guess I should have named my daughter Mogadishuante. That would seem about right.

  • Wait! Don’t hit me anymore! Some of my best friends are colored people!

    They must have forgotten wear their FORWARD tee shirts.

  • I thought it was a face of some missing link anthropologists just reconstructed.

  • MarcusTrajanus

    It’s a tragedy that it’s 2012 and blacks in America are still being kept in such abject poverty (through no fault of their own)  that they can’t even afford the latest iPhone and must resort to crime to meet this basic need.

  • Have you ever been to Minneapolis? The North and South parts of the city proper have been fully infested by Chicago and Detroit transplants for 20 years and most of the first ring suburbs have been lost for nearly that long. This story clearly indicates that they have made it to Dinkytown.
