Two suspects in the alleged robbery and assault in the Alliance Bank parking lot in Cape Girardeau in January have been scheduled for jury trials. 18-year-old Shalayla Lowe of Cape Girardeau is the first of two suspects with multiple charges that will go to trial in August charged with robbery in the first degree and armed criminal action. 19-year-old Jessica Davis has been scheduled for a jury trial to begin in October, also for robbery in the first degree and armed criminal action. Earlier this year, Police responded to a call at Alliance Bank that the victim 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 Darin Hickey says that within minutes a vehicle matching the description was reported at a residence near William and Benton streets, and the four women were taken into custody.
