SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A local man has been accused of robbing another individual.

Mack Hartison, 19, was charged June 6 with second-degree robbery.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, a man got a phone call from a friend asking for money.

The man went to the friend’s apartment and told her he did not have any money.

Hartison and another male then followed the man to his apartment, where they reportedly confronted him outside, physically grabbing him and demanding money.

When the man refused, Hartison and the other male took the victim’s wallet, cash, and cell phone from his pocket.

The victim told officials he was missing $500, his wallet which contained his Social Security card, and his green card, and his cell phone. The victim then identified Hartison in a photo lineup.

Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony.
