Davenport Police arrested three suspects early Monday several hours after responding to a robbery call, which escalated to a standoff outside of a residence on Harrison Street.
Shortly after 3 a.m. police units responded to the call in the 500 block of West Locust Street, where three male subjects, one armed with a baseball bat, robbed one victim, according to a Davenport police-issued news release.
St. Ambrose University security personnel tracked the suspects, who subsequently targeted authorities with a Molotov cocktail, which damaged one vehicle, police said.
Upon arrival, police officers witnessed one suspect enter a residence in the 2100 block of Harrison Street. Patrol officers formed an initial perimeter surrounding the residence, while the department’s tactical operations bureau and emergency services team also responded to assist in the standoff.
One individual surrendered shortly after police negotiators contacted the suspects over a public address system, according to the release. Police continued announcements until negotiators secured a “safe surrender” of the other two individuals about three hours after the initial incident occurred.
All suspects who were charged and booked into the Scott County Jail related to this incident include:
• Mark Lyons, 16, of Davenport: first-degree robbery, a Class B felony; possession with intent of an incendiary device, a Class C f; third-degree criminal mischief.
• Juan Pizano Jr., 18, of Davenport: first-degree robbery, a Class B felony; possession with intent of an incendiary device, a Class C felony; third-degree criminal mischief.
• Jerry Grandville, 16, of Davenport: first-degree robbery, a Class B felony; possession with intent of an incendiary device, a Class C felony; third-degree criminal mischief.
In Iowa, Class B felony convictions carry a sentence of up to 25 years.
Pizano remained in custody Monday evening. No status information was available for the 16-year-olds because of they are juveniles.
Authorities are investigating other potentially related incidents, but no further information was available later Monday.
