Multiple juveniles arrested for beating, robbing off-duty Arlington cop

An off-duty Arlington police officer escaped serious injury this morning after he was assaulted and robbed while getting gas at the QT on E. Division Street and Collins Street.

Just before 7:30am this morning, an Arlington police officer had just left his shift on the east side of town when he stopped at the QT to get gas in his personal vehicle. As he was standing at the gas pump, a while passenger car pulled up to the pump beside the off-duty officer’s personal vehicle.

It was at this time that multiple juveniles suspects got out of the vehicle and began assaulting the officer. One juvenile punched him in the face and another pistol-whipped him in the head. The off-duty officer was armed, but complied with the robbery.

The suspects took the officer’s wallet and phone and drove off in the white car.

A few hours later, the Dallas Police Department pulled over the suspect’s vehicle at a convenience store in the 2100 block of E. Ledbetter Drive. The vehicle was determined to have been stolen.

Dallas officers arrested the juvenile suspects. They also located the officer’s wallet and phone.

“The information we have right now leads us to believe this was a crime of opportunity and the officer was not targeted based upon his affiliation with law enforcement,” said Chief of Police Al Jones.

The incident remains under investigation.
