On June 2, James and two ac­com­plices al­legedly beat and robbed an­oth­er man along the 1600 block of Grant Ave. The vic­tim told po­lice that he was walk­ing down the street at 9:42 p.m. when he was at­tacked without warn­ing.

James al­legedly knocked the vic­tim to the ground and held him as the oth­ers took the vic­tim’s wal­let. Po­lice did not dis­close any in­jur­ies suffered by the vic­tim, who re­cog­nized James.

Al­ex­an­der al­legedly grabbed a kit­chen knife and at­tacked the wo­man with it. The vic­tim at­temp­ted to de­flect the knife with her hands and feet and suffered a stab wound of the foot.

Al­ex­an­der fled the scene as the wo­man called 911. She was hos­pit­al­ized as a res­ult of her in­jury.

On Sept. 11 at about 8 p.m., Doc­tor and an ac­com­plice al­legedly quarreled with and beat up an­oth­er man on the 4700 block of How­ell St. Po­lice did not dis­close a motive for the at­tack, dur­ing which Doc­tor al­legedly punched the vic­tim in the face and head, for­cing him to the ground. Doc­tor and his ac­com­plice then kicked and stomped the vic­tim, who lost con­scious­ness, po­lice said.
