Man charged after stealing purse and injuring victim at Davenport Hy-Vee

A Davenport man is behind bars after injuring a woman and stealing her purse at the Hy-Vee on West Kimberly.

Police say on Friday, they were called to Hy-Vee just after 7:30 PM for a report of a stolen vehicle. Investigators say 50 year old John Miley robbed the victim of her purse.

While trying to leave the scene, police say Miley attempted "to inflict serious injury to the victim." They say when Miley was attempting to flee the scene in a stolen vehicle, he hit a vehicle stopped in traffic. This resulted in the victim being trapped between the two vehicles. Police say the victim had minor bruises and bleeding from her injuries.

Miley is being charged with 1st-degree robbery and 2nd-degree theft, both felonies and then charged with WRC hold, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident, failure to maintain control, no insurance and reckless driving, all misdemeanor charges.
