BIRMINGHAM –Police arrested a suspect in connection to an assault and robbery on the Southside. Jeffrey Hall, 22yrs old of Birmingham, was arrested Saturday for robbery and assault. He is being held on a $75,000 bond.
The incident occurred on January 14, the police department said in a statement. Hall and another unidentified black male approached the victim in the Idle Wild Neighborhood.
At that point, one of the males struck the victim in the face with a pistol, and took various items including the victim’s car keys. The suspects then left the location in the victim’s vehicle.
Hall, according to investigators, was released from prison in November of 2015 on probation for another robbery he committed back in 2009.
“Our officers are working extremely hard every day, patrolling and investigating crimes,” Chief A.C. Roper “The unfortunate reality is there are times where it appears we’re caught in a strange catch and release program where we arrest them and they are released right back into their former lifestyles. This violent criminal has been free for only two months so it didn’t take long to return to a life of crime. Hopefully the system gets it right this time.”
