UPDATE: Robbery victim shares story

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A few days after getting shot, a 17-year-old boy is arrested for allegedly robbing two people at gunpoint.

Dewon Campbell, 17, and 20-year-old Queshandis Seals were both taken into custody Thursday morning for robbing two women at gunpoint.

They're accused of robbing two women in Cedar Falls at the Gold Falls Villa Apartments.

According to reports, Campbell was one of the three victims of a deadly Waterloo shooting Sunday night.

Police were called to the Logan Avenue crime scene after three men went to Allen Hospital for gunshot wounds. 

Campbell was one of the three people shot, and another man died.

Less than four days after 17-year-old Dewon Campbell was shot in Waterloo and released from the hospital, he, another man allegedly arrived to the Gold Falls Villa Apartments in Cedar Falls to rob the victims at gunpoint.

"And, then I ran into the closet and got really scared. I pretty much just sat there, and they held a gun to my head also, and they thought I was going to call police, which was my intention, but I couldn't," Brooklyn Thompson-Peyton said.

Brooklyn lives in Waterloo, but was staying with her friend at the Cedar Falls apartment.

Brooklyn says the two men came inside around 1:30 a.m.

That's when they held them at gunpoint and demanded money and their electronics.

"There's a lot of safety in Waterloo. There are more cops patrolling places and stuff like that, but I definitely think it's moving to Cedar Falls now," Brooklyn said.

After the two men left, Brooklyn called police and identified them in a photo lineup.

She said she realized Campbell was the same person involved Sunday night's shooting incident after reading it on KWWL.com

"It's just frustrating to know that's him, because when does it stop? You got caught once. So, why do you continue to do it? It's crazy, because it used to be so safe here in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, and people know that, and now it's just turning into a whole different story," Brooklyn said.

According to Cedar Falls Police, they were able to find the two suspects after the women called for help.

Craig Berte with the Cedar Falls Police Department says authorities were able to find some of the money and property reported stolen.

At last check, both men are being held in the Black Hawk County Jail, and Cedar Falls police confirm both men have a lengthy criminal record.
