Hispanics targeted by robbers in Knoxville


KNOXVILLE.–The victims remain in silence. Their fear of retaliation overcomes the indignation of being the target of street robbers. The area is Lonsdale.
Concerned Knoxville citizens whose friends and family members are counted as some of the known victims are trying to spread the word within the Hispanic community and local Police officers about at least 4 cases of robbery with the use of knifes and fire arms.
The way things seems to happen starts with a pull over in the night hours. Hispanics are being pulled over by a car that makes them believe it is an undercover officer performing ‘her’ job.
A woman dressed in uniform comes out of the car that has blinking lights and ask the Hispanics to get out of their car. Then the fake officer with the help of another person, -an African- american according to our sources, show firearms and hold a knife to the neck of the scared driver. The assault is performed and the robbers leave with the threat of shooting the victims if they attempt to follow them.
