    Cedar Rapids Officer assaulted.

    CEDAR RAPIDS - Police Officer Tim Davis suffered serious head injuries when someone beat him, while he chased robbery suspects last Sunday night. Now police are pleading for the people responsible for the crime to come forward.

    The 30-year-old officer, husband, and father had surgery Monday after a helicopter flight to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Davis and his partner, Officer Tracy Brumbaugh, responded to a mugging in the area along 16th St. NE, just north of 1st Ave. They spotted people that matched the suspects' descriptions nearby: three black juvenile males wearing black jackets and jeans.

    Officers got out of the car and identified themselves. Then, two of the males took off down the street, and Davis' partner followed. When backup arrived, they found the third person gone and Davis laying by his car, unconscious and seriously injured.

    Twila Filling has walked that same stretch of her neighborhood daily for 20 years. What happened overnight might make her choose a new route.

    Filling says, "I don't carry no money on me or my purse when I walk, but still they'll hit you over the head, see if you got any money."

    The robbery police believe led to an attack on one of their own had officers patrolling Filling's neighborhood Monday for answers.

    Cedar Rapids Police Chief Greg Graham says, "To brutally attack a police officer is an attack of our entire community. Our officers are out there protecting our citizens and for someone to attack one is unthinkable, inexcusable and unacceptable to us."

    Davis underwent a three-hour surgery for what Graham says is a life-threatening head injury.

    Sgt. Cristy Hamblin says, "The first thought that I had as soon as he was injured was 'Please, God, just let him be okay.'"

    As Davis emerged from surgery in guarded condition, police continued to search for the two at-large suspects in the overnight events. Because Davis couldn't remember the attack, their only description - black males with black jackets and jeans - came from the robbery victim.

    A resident of that neighborhood says, "I do feel that black people do get stereotyped in situations like that. My appearance, for example, might be menacing or appear gang-related, but it's not in any way, shape or form."

    Filling says the part that worries her the most is that juveniles carried out these crimes.

    She says, "It's scary. It is, it's really scary."

    Police say their thoughts and prayers are with Davis, his wife and children Monday night, as he remains at UIHC. Chief Graham says Davis is one of the most respected and well-liked members of the force. The four-year veteran was most recently in the K-9 unit, until his dog had to retire because of medical reasons this year.

    He and his partner were in civilian clothing and an unmarked vehicle Sunday night when they pursued the robbery suspects. It was part of the Weed and Seed program, an intense effort to eradicate violent crime in neighborhoods. Police are asking for anyone with information on this crime to come forward.

    Police did take one of the three robbery suspects into custody Sunday night. The charges against 14-year-old Robert Watkins III are first degree robbery and interference with officials acts causing serious injury to Davis.

    Police also revealed the name of the robbery victim. They say the three robbers hit and kicked 20-year-old David Scanlon numerous times on his head and body. He received treatment at St. Luke's Hospital. He has since been released.

    They have one more in custody, but the coward that hurt Officer Davis is still at large. I can't wait for more details on the shitbag so we can start looking.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    The bastard has been caught!

    CEDAR RAPIDS- Cedar Rapids Police have arrested the person they say beat Officer Tim Davis during a robbery investigation Sunday night.

    17 year-old Jose Rockiett is charged with first degree robbery and assault on a peace officer.

    Rockiett was found after Investigators followed leads and he became a person of interest. He was brought to the Cedar Rapids Police Department at about 4:30 PM and later charged. He was then transported to the Linn County Detention Center. Cedar Rapids Police are still investigating the incident.

    After Rockiett’s arrest, his mother, Josetta Fowler, 35, and his brother, Vanice Heath, 15, came to the Cedar Rapids Police Department and were later arrested for Interference with Official Acts. Fowler was transported to the Hinzman Center and Heath was taken to the Detention Center.

    Cedar Rapids police officer Tim Davis suffered major head injuries when he was beat after he responded to a robbery on Sunday night.

    For three hours on Monday afternoon, doctors at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics operated on Davis. They called his injuries "life-threatening."

    Monday evening, the police officer, husband and father was listed in "guarded condition."

    As police cars patrol the area where the incident happened, many people who live nearby say violence has become all too common in their neighborhood.

    "If you try to walk around this neighborhood at night, you better be with someone. If you're by yourself, there's a good possibility you'll get mugged,” neighbor Charles Greenen said.

    Police Chief Greg Graham says investigators are doing everything they can to find the person who beat Officer Davis.

    "You feel helpless because your officer is in the hospital and his family is grieving because of that. The other officers are also going through emotional peaks and valleys. We're trying to keep everyone focused on getting the job done,” Graham said.

    Officers tried to remain focused on their jobs, but couldn't stop thinking about their colleague.

    "I've been praying since I got up this morning…He's the all-American boy who lives next door and is an all-around good guy,” Sergeant Cristy Hamblin said.

    People who live in the area say police regularly patrol the streets, but wish officers could spend even more time here.

    "We want the police here. We want them up and down the street as often as we can get them. If we could afford it, we'd pay for one to park right here on the street,” Greenen said.

    Police say Officer Davis has no memory of the attack itself, but is recovering from surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

    Davis has spent four years on the force and recently worked in the K9 unit.

    Hope the puke gets charged as an adult and is sent where he belongs for a longtime, this includes his family that was also charged.

    Prayers and thoughts for a speedy and full recovery for the Officer.
