The victim had his money out as Mulapi grabbed it and attempted to run, FCPD reports. The victim then tried to grab Mulapi to stop him. A 16-year-old male then jumped on the victim and hit him.

  1. I like the pool article better, can we bubble our wonderful Parklawn?

  2. Sounds like we need a force field like on star trek. Thank goodness our police were on this individual. Good job FFX police. Forget the Trump wall and the prisons, just helicopter him and drop him in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with the sharks, where he will feel right at home.
