Police suspect robbers are targeting Hispanics
Jackson police say Hispanics appeared to have been targeted in recent armed robberies on the Northside.
Three armed robberies in which Hispanics were victims were reported recently in Northeast Jackson, with incidents occurring at apartment complexes on Briarwood Drive and Northpointe Parkway.
Precinct Four Cmdr. James McGowan said officers were following several leads in the cases last week. He urges Hispanics, regardless of their immigration status, to call the police when they’re victims of crime.
