An alleged robbery and assault in the Alliance Bank parking lot Wednesday afternoon led to the arrests of several suspects in Cape Girardeau. Cape Girardeau Police Officer Darin Hickey says that at approximately 1:22 pm Wednesday police responded to a call that a female victim was walking through the parking lot, was approached by a car of people who called out to her, exited the vehicle, allegedly assaulted her, displayed a knife, took money, and drove away. Officer Hickey tells KZIM-KSIM that within minutes a vehicle matching the description was reported at a residence near William and Benton streets. The suspects remain in custody awaiting formal charges from the prosecuting attorney.
