OTTUMWA — A trio of Indian Hills students have been charged in connection with an assault case tied to a stolen BB gun.
Police records show Kevin Dorsey Jr., 19, Jalen Hawkins, 18, and Corey Manigault, 19, were arrested at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Wapello County Law Center. All three face the assault charge, while Dorsey and Hawkins face an additional charge of theft.
All charges are misdemeanors.
Court filings say the theft charge is tied to the fact the gas-powered BB gun was stolen. Dorsey and Hawkins were passengers in a vehicle and allegedly fired the gun out a window. One of the pellets struck a person, resulting in the assault charge. Police say Manigault was the vehicle’s driver.
All three have pleaded not guilty.
