A 17-year-old kid got separated from his buddies on Saturday after a day at the Salt River and accepted a ride home from four dudes. Bad move.
The guys drove the teen to an apartment complex at 1803 North Country Club Drive and ordered him to get out of the car, described only as a "silver four-door." The quartet of thugs pummeled him and stole his necklace and gold pendant, Mesa police say.
The four suspects may be about the same age or slightly older than their victim. One had a mohawk and the words "Fear No Man" tattooed prominently on his chest. He shouldn't be so hard to find.
The suspect descriptions from Mesa police follow:
Suspect #1Driver- Hispanic male 19-21 years of age, 5'11" tall weighing 180 lbs. shirtless wearing a red Cincinnati Reds baseball cap.
Suspect #2 Front Passenger- Hispanic male 19-21 years of age, brown hair with a Mohawk style haircut, 5'11"tall weighing 200lbs. stocky build wearing a tank top. Suspect had a tattoo on his upper chest "Fear No Man".
Suspect #3 Rear Passenger- Hispanic male 17-18 years of age, brown hair with a buzz cut or fade haircut.
Suspect #4 Rear Passenger- Hispanic male 17-18 years of age, brown hair with a buzz cut or fade haircut.
