On Oct. 26 a male victim told LaFollette Police Officer John Baker that he was with friends at a Claiborne Road apartment when he was approached by a man who “threw a towel over his head and forced him to the ground on his stomach and began punching him.”

According to police reports, during the struggle the victim said he felt someone remove his wallet from his back pocket. Records from the incident indicate the victim was able to uncover his head and saw April Ann Harvey, 29, of 311 North 13th Street, taking his wallet. Harvey allegedly removed cash from the wallet before “kicking the victim several times in the back and side.” Harvey is charged with robbery and is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 21.
