Citizen robbed outside store

adrian thompsonAccording to Colorado City police, a robbery occurred in front of the Dollar General store on Hickory Street last Thursday, The victim had her purse stolen and was pushed to the ground in the altercation.
On Thursday, January 28th, around 7:15 in the evening, police were called to the store located at 2005 Hickory. The caller said that there was a robbery in progress.
When officers arrived, the female victim, Adrian Thompson, told police that three African American men wearing dark hoodie sweaters were sitting on the bench in front of the store when she came out. She said they came up behind her, grabbed her purse and shoved her down.
Thompson said the men then ran east from the store, towards the 500 block of 20th Street.
According to a media release from the CCPD, officers attempted to locate the subjects and saw an African American man burning items in the backyard of 644 E. 16th Street. Officers approached the man about proper burn permits and noticed that the items in the fire pit were items belonging to the victim.
The man detained has been identified as Marquis Anthony Williams of Colorado City. Officers found that Williams also had some medication belonging to the victim in his pocket.
Williams was arrested and transported to the Mitchell County Jail and booked on felony charges of Robbery and Tampering with Evidence, as well as a misdemeanor charge of assault.
In a social media post, Thompson said the incident proved to be the scariest night of her life. She said that police officers found one of the suspects in less than half an hour, and she also expressed her support of the local police force.
The two other suspects are still at large and the case is under investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Investigator Kelsey Rivera with the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.
