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.

Pedophile and a prostitute beat and rob a wannabe customer. That rates probation in Iowa apparently. I'm sure they'll learn their lesson that way. What a joke.

Look , what all of these people had done was wrong. But what kind of message are we sending, when we feel sorry for the drug dealer that got beat up ? Oh, wait I had miss spoken, look it was six criminals not five, appears they turned on eachother. I am one of those people that rely's on facts. As reported the girls were the ones that lured the other criminal down to the bike path, not my problem. It is sickening to think that this generation for the most part, has a fals sense of entitlement. They want what they want when they want it, can't afford it, so lets just rob someone, and rob than for a lowsy fifty bucks and drugs. this our new age pirates of the Quad Cities. Just ask yourselves now was it really worth it in the end. Gives a whole new meaning to whats mine is mine and whats yours is mine. They are all a bunch of self centered and self absorbed individuals. By the way Mr.hrconstruction, your daughter made her bed as well as the rest of them. But I can see what a good message you are sending, not only to your children but to ours as well. My poor baby, that plotted and conspiredthis like everyone else did, in this sick crime. Then you as the dad have a brilliant plot of your own, premeditated to conspire to setting up your other children to beat up not one but two men. Well daddy , what a good example your showing as well. What happens if one of those men die during your premeditated conspiracy. Lets cut through all this garbage, an ace is a ace know matter how you look at it. They are all feeling sorry for themselves, not for the man ( criminal) they had beaten. They could have killed him, and then would have been facing murder charges and possibly even more. They could have been killed themselves.I feel sorry that you ended up hurt as well. You are hurt and angery that your daughter made some bad choices for her self. But she is an adult , she knew exactly what she was getting herself into. Instead of threatening the others that were willing partners in crime, lets start being parents again. We are not to be are kids best friend. God gave us the most importan job in this world when he gave us our babbies to raise. Don't sugar coat things for them, say it like it is. Love them despite their short comings, but be firm in your own conviction. Be the father that you should be. Be made at the one you have, Just concentrate on How to fix her brokenness, not the others. It is hard as a parent sometimes to even look at ourselves in the mirror, and see our own mistakes we have made. In time we can forgive, love and start anew. Time and prayers do heal all wounds. Just remember when children are little they step on our feet, when they grow up they step on our hearts. Do forgive your daughter and love her. But help guide through this hard lesson in the right way. You are all in my prayers. God bless all you parents through all this pain you have to endure.

There is a lot more to all of this. The paper has only presented part of the story so far because the rest is going to come out in court. It is all very odd as regards the whole set up.
Regardless the bahaviors will be addressed but I do not understand why there was a meeting set up in the first place. Obviousy there was a purpose and random assaults on the bike path are now based upon whether the assailants understand or ignore concealed carry. Young lives destroyed at least for the time being. Lucky for all of us, there are not 5 dead kids.
If a firearm was involved, this is a big time felony and all are going to be subject to it.

I was a child of the 60's raised in Davenport. My mother would always remark, " Well if one of your friends jumps off the Centienial Bridge will you follow them".? Where is that common sense? Maybe they'll get some now, maybe too some compassion for others.

I AM BEHIND U BOBBY!!!!!! ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!

Dolphin

Twirly...sounds like you know these kids. I do see what you are talking about with their facial expressions. Your Bobby does appear to be looking down and Kelly the girl looks young. But they did not get here over night, there is a victum here. The whole thing sounds like they all knew each other, including the victum. Who gets lured out at night to the bike path? I don't like to blame the victum, but I think there is much more to the story, a history together.

Taney

Twirly, do yourself a favor. Get away from these losers and get an education. Very few people are going to take you serious when you write and talk all this ghetto trash.

ITS WHY BOBBY IS LOOKIN DOWN BECAUSE HE IS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE DID WRONG AND SO DOES KELLY, LOOK AT THEM FACES, IK THEM TO KNOW THEY DID WRONG, KELLY HAS A MAD LOOK THAT SHE WOULD EVEN WANT TO BE INVOLVED

Grouchy Old Fart

If he is looking down then he has some messed up eyes because the way I see him; his head is held-up in an arrogant manner and his eyes are fixed straight ahead. The only thing they are disappointed about is getting caught. Good people don't commit crimes like this, even by accident they don't.

BOBBY DOES AS MUCH AS HE CAN FER THAT BABY, GUESS U HAVE TO KNOW THE STORY BEHIND IT ALL TO UNDERSTAND, THE GIRL WAS IN TROUBLE AND BOBBY KNOWS THAT FEELIN' AND IM SURE THE PERSON THEY LURED IN WAS THE CHOMO WHO WAS MESSIN WIT A FAMILY MEMBER OF MINE, SO IF THAT IS TRUE THANK U BOBBY!!!!! IM BEHIND U AND GOT UR BACK ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grouchy Old Fart

You are thanking a person for beating another person? Your comments make you and this group look like a bunch of inbred rednecks. At the very least incredibly under educated and lacking in common sense.

Really you need to just stop, you are not helping your case, you sound ignorant and illiterate.

I'm embarassed to be related to one of them. Good Lord, they all need help.

Ain't no heaven thug white trash.

peoplearesick

I'm still just trying to figure out why two seemingly beautiful young women are hanging out with two guys that look like pedophiles who just crawled out of the dumpster.......Am I doing something wrong? Do I need more drugs to draw them in and hook them? What's the deal?

Taney

I don't see an ounce of remorse on any of their faces. Personally, I would rather be alone than to attract these kinds of people.

DEVILDOG0311

Sorry everybody. It was poor judgement. I thought by saying that, the kids would think that, not only does their actions have consequences for themselves but for their families as well. . I crossed the line. I'm sorry. I wasn't the greatest kid however growing up. But the thought of how my family would be affected helped fix me. Again I admit I was wrong and do feel guilty. That's why I flagged my own comment. I'm going straight to church to be thankful for what I have and my family. I've learned my lesson. I get no enjoyment for trying to participate in this. So I'm out

This all really makes me freaking SICK! How come someone in there right mind even do something like this..... These people must not have hearts to beat, and rob someone.... I've known bobby for about 5 years now, and i know he's been in ALOT of trouble, but it makes me so sick just knowing he'd do something like this..... I thought he was better then all this, but i guess i don't know the "Real" bobby!!!. He deserves the time for doing his crime!.... Thats all i gotta say... It just break my heart knowing this.... Why would someone do such a nasty thing........ YUCK!

Bettwoman123

dear thinkb4utalk.. again
I apologize, I spoke too soon.I see that you were standing up for your parent because they were trashtalked by devildog. I am sorry!

Bettwoman123

Dear thinkb4utalk,
Many peoples parents pass away and you don't see them going out and maliciously beating someone up. Have some dignity for yourself and your family and leave your deceased parent out of this!! How could you even try to stand up for your sisters UNJUSTIFIABLE mistake.

FIRST: If these five are guilty of this crime, they deserve to pay a price. My hearts goes out deeply to the victim and his family; GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
However, DEVILDOG, stigmatizing the families of these suspects is dispicable in itself.
P.S. I hope you take THAT BET to Vegas. Hurry! Surely you will bet as blindly and naively as you have here, playing your pitiable hand as poorly as you flap your pitiable lips against these suspects' PARENTS; of whose lives (and deaths) you are completely ignorant! BET BIG while this well deserved luck remains; sincerely! Just think, when you finally BUST, you can stay in Vegas and start whining there about the share of your tax dollars allocated to the safety of your community, though you might need a better paying job to contribute satisfactorily.
RIP MOMMA

Depends on what kind of offenses they have on their record. Not every Judge is going to just throw them in prison for 10 years on their first offense. Now, for the 16 year old, unless he gets waived to adult court, its VERY unlikely he'll get prison time. But who knows, depending on his record...he could be waived to adult court. You all do realize that this tends to be built into them...jail isn't going to "teach" them anything. They're going to get out of jail, prison, or whatever else the sentencing is and they're just going to keep on doing it. Believe me, I feel like they should have punishment and need to pay...but there's only so much the court system can do. I'd much rather have murders and rapist in jail...but maybe that's just me.

thinkb4utalk

DevilDog... how appropriate a name, as I suspect you are as spiteful as you are distasteful. I am a sibling of one of these suspects, and our mother DIED last year, a peaceful, wonderful, ever-giving, and selfless single mother. I only hope you never have children who disappoint you, because GOD knows (and NO... I am not referring to your self-righteous, judgmental and ignorantly chastising self) that there will be those (like you) who will find ways to blame the uninvolved and truly innocent. In the future, before you speak ill of the dead, perhaps you should expend at least a small amount of effort educating yourself to the circumstances of the entire families you wish to disparage, before you choose to spew such sewer from your sour mouth.

thinkb4utalk

I guess they removed DEVILDOGS comment condemning the suspects' parents. Well, that comment is what my post was in response to; figured I'd explain now that it seems out of place.

Thank you as one of Kelly Parents also.

The 16 yr old has been in trouble with the law several times and has only recieved a slap on the wrist. This will not be the last time you see his name in the paper.

I can't wait to have my taxes used to support your jail time you pathetic human beings!

They must have known the person that they beat up since a phone call was made to him. Wonderful people.
Scary world out there.

stmanser

Well considering I just moved into that neighborhood, I will be carrying my firearm when walking on the bike path from now on. I dare these punks to pull this sh&t on a former military person with adequate training.

What a nice group of young adults (NOT)! I previously met Bobby and Timothy. Timothy seemed to have a real explosive temper, while Bobby seemed to be more of a follower. That was just my impression, but I do not really know them at all. I hope they will be punished and learn a lesson. Maybe get some anger management classes.

writingmomma

Now, let's see if these losers sentencing will match the "cell phone" loser that robbed the man on Locust St. I doubt it very seriously though. The comments surely don't look the same for these monsters, as they did for that other loser. Their bonds are even a joke. Will this be another case of, "Oh, their just kids that made a bad choice. Let's give them probation and send them to rehab." When will these ADULTS start truly being held accountable for THEIR actions? There was only one 16 year old, that is considered a kid in this. Let's see how close we can get to that 10 year sentence! Maybe by the time they get out of prison, they will know that crime doesn't pay!!!

I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Bobby was the one threatening to shoot the guy. All of their parents have to be so proud. Lock them up and throw away the key. Losers!

I agree, he has been trouble for as long as I've know of him.

See i am one of the parents and no I am not proud of my child. Unfortantly as the father of Kelly I wasnt allowed by the mother to have anything to do with the upbringing of her or her twin sisters due to the bigger D@ck sysndrom that women seen to have these days. Kelly is not a bad person just involved with a couple of dope feinds that will experience realness here soon. As fr as saying they are all satans spawns , look at your own family and issues before you throw mud at someone else. Wrong is wrong and my child knows this, just a really bad choice chasing the high, I will support my daughter thru this and hopefully she will gain some knowledge and insight as to why all this happened the way it did . Doesnt mean she is dumb or iggnorant just happened to become involved with the wrong people. Mr Bobby and Mr Timmy will see my boys at the end of the line and they wont like it..........

Taney

I commend you for admitting what your child done was wrong and for supporting her through this. But, I am offended that you feel that I agreed with another person's post that they are all Satan's spawn. Yes, there are members of my family that have gotten themselves into legal trouble but they didn't assault someone, especially in this manner. And, yes, although they did the time for their crimes, I would still call them losers to their faces.

But, it seems you have a double set of standards here. You admit what your daughter done was wrong, but yet you are suggesting that your boys are going to get their own type of justice against these two guys. That sounds to me like you are encouraging the violence.
