Woman Assaulted, Robbed Outside Sioux Falls Convenience Store
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the 46-year-old woman bought beer from a store at 5th and Minnesota around 10:30pm and was a short distance away when she was approached by a woman who asked for money.
“The lady, who ends up being our victim, gave $2 to the other woman. As she began to walk away that female returned and then was with a guy and he demanded the money as well. The woman said she didn’t have any money and the man began punching her and knocked her to the ground… the woman was knocked unconscious and left behind.”
Officer Sam Clemens:
Clemens says the woman was spotted around 10:50 pm by a Minnehaha County Sheriff’s deputy and taken to a hospital, and he says police were called Tuesday morning when she remembered what had happened.
The suspects are described as a Native American woman and a Native American man who is believed to be in his 30s, five feet seven inches tall with long black hair.
