Man linked to another Iowa City robbery


IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Iowa City police have linked Ahkinea Cox to another robbery in Iowa City.

Investigators say that two men robbed the Delimart at 1920 Muscatine Road on Aug. 17.

According to police, one of the suspects displayed a handgun and demanded money from the convenience store clerk and also a female customer. The suspect with the handgun had a piece of black fabric wrapped over his face. More than $1,000 was taken from the cash register.

ICPD investigators developed Cox as a possible suspect in the Delimart robbery.

Iowa City Police have now charged Cox with first-degree robbery and second-degree theft.

In November, police say Cox and Frederick Reid attempted to rob Gasby's convenience store in the 1300 block of South Gilbert Street in Iowa City.
