A Young Couple Was Robbed at Knifepoint While Walking Beside White Rock Lake

Via.
A half hour after sunset on Thursday evening, a young couple was walking along the White Rock Lake Trail. They were passing through the small wooded area by the spillway at the southern tip of the lake, headed toward the water, when a man passed headed in the opposite direction.

They didn't think much of this until they reached the top of the dam and the man passed them again, going in the same direction that they were. The man stopped a few feet in front of them and, turning, pulled out a gray-handled butcher knife, demanding their money.

The girl just had her cell phone, an $80 Android model. Her boyfriend handed over his wallet, keys, and cell phone. Loot in hand, the robber put his hand in his pocket like he had a gun. "I'll give you three seconds to run!" he barked. "If you don't run, I'm going to shoot you!"

They obeyed and ran along the dam toward the power station until they got to a guard shack, from which they called police. We have a call into DPD to see if they can give a suspect description. Until then, just be sure to steer clear of anyone who looks like they might have a butcher knife.

As long as I get my free birth control pills what difference does it make?

Tell you one thing. If anybody gets robbed or assaulted by an illegal mexican then it is up to us citizens to string the person up from a tree since our government is on the illegals side.

Yet another reason I always go armed to White Rock Lake.  Way too much crime there.

Perhaps a physical description of the criminal would help us "steer clear" ??

@roo_ster 

As compared to where?  I've been going for years and never had a problem.  I think you're over-generalizing

@CornyDoggy @roo_ster Well, gosh if you went somewhere and 'never had a problem' it must just not exist. Of course if anyone points out the statistics that show crime in an area this is the response of delusional whites.

you think it's funny these people were robbed? if they had been armed maybe they wouldn't have been robbed.

@roo_ster

like what?  how much? to what degree?  your local park is comparable to white rock?  Your generalization implies you have an anti-white rock agenda

@CornyDoggy @roo_ster Break out Google maps and take a gander and med-large parks with lakes in the burbs  north of Dallas.  Off the top of my head: Woodruff, Breckinridge, Ewin.  There are others.

WRL is nifty, but by no means unique.  

CornyDoggy, I doubt I can fully amend your ignorance of relative crime rates in a blog comment.  I would suggest broadening your horizons a bit and looking it up for your own self.

@cantkeepthetruthdown

How do you know I'm white?  And I didn't say crime doesn't exist there, I'm saying to what degree and compared to what?  What's your general point?

@roo_ster

Like what similar parks?  As far as I know, White Rock is quite unique around these parts.  And if you're so knowledgeable about relative crime statistics for DFW parks, how about throwing us a bone of context?

@cantkeepthetruthdown

I didn't say crime didn't exist there, I said "way too much crime there" is quite the generalization.  In what context?  Seems OP has an agenda

@G_David Dude, it is a comment to a blog posting, not a PhD dissertation. FTR, yes, crime around WRL is higher relative to similar parks in the 'burbs north of Dallas.

"way too much crime there" is what you consider statistics?  You're pathetic.

you and miss myrna are quite the pair. y'all are hateful to folks you don't know for no reason. which prompts me to ask you the same question i asked the young lady. how old are you, kid? i would guess that both af you are in the 12-15 year old age group, is that about right?

@hilllbillle You're both a couple of idiots.  I thought KIM'S comment was funny, not that the couple was mugged.  Duh!

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz @hilllbillle really in what way was it funny? are we to assume that everyone that approaches us at WR is a criminal? wouldn't it help to know the perps ethnicity, height, weight, type of clothes?
