Five people are facing charges after Davenport police said they lured a man to a bike path where they beat and robbed him.
The five were arrested Wednesday on charges of robbery second-degree and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony. Each charge is a Class C felony under Iowa law. Class C felonies carry prison sentences of up to 10 years.
Charged are Bobby Dean Matejcek, 24; Kelly Elizabeth Hobert, 20; Timothy Michael McGauley Jr., 25, and Ashley Marie Cummings, 19, all of 1995 W. 40th St., Apartment 419, Davenport. Also charged is Tyler Overmann, 16, of 4803 Wisconsin Ave., Davenport.
According to the arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police Detective Janet Martin, on Sept. 17 at 1:24 p.m., one of the females called the victim and asked him to meet her at Northwest Park, 3400 N. Division St.
The female then sent text messages to the others about the victim’s arrival at the park.
According to the arrest affidavit, both of the women involved walked the victim to the bike path, where the three males of the group confronted him.
One of the men threatened to shoot the victim and ordered him to the ground. The victim was kicked, beaten and struck with a large stick.
The man’s backpack, which contained $50 as well as clothing, a cellphone, a sketchbook and other items, was taken. The man was told to remain on the ground or he would be shot.
Matejcek, Hobert, McGauley and Cummings were being held Wednesday night at the Scott County Jail. Matejcek and Hobert were being held on $10,000 bond. McGauley and Cummings were being held without bond.
Overmann was being held Wednesday night at the Scott County Juvenile Detention Center.
