Posted on 27th October 2010 at 07:44

Longview Police are looking into a report of a robbery that came in yesterday afternoon in the 800 block of 7th Avenue. Around 4:35 pm, Mark Anthony Cochran, 19, called 911, claiming that he’d been walking in an alley, heading toward 9th Avenue, when a man came up from behind, stuck something in his back, then said that he’d kill Cochran if he moved. Cochran says that the suspect got away with his wallet, ID and cash, running a ways down 7th Avenue before turning west. The suspect was reported to be wearing a black hoody and black pants. Longview Police checked the area, but didn’t find anyone matching that description. During this incident, Officers also turned up an outstanding warrant on Cochran, so he was arrested later in the afternoon on a no-bail Department of Corrections hold. The robbery investigation continues.
