Man Robs Two, Steals Car in Dunegant Park

The man drove into a squad car while trying to evade officers, police said.

A man robbed two people at gunpoint Friday in Florissant’s Dunegant Park, 1930 Derhake Road, police said.

Florissant Police said Quan Rhodes, 20, approached two people in the park, pulled a handgun and demanded cell phones, cash and anything valuable they had. He took a woman’s keys and stole her red, 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier, police said.

Officers spotted the stolen car and pursued it, attempting to stop it. Rhodes struck a patrol car during the pursuit.

Rhodes was charged Friday with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

Rhodes is being held in St. Louis County jail. Bail was set at $100,000.

So by that logic when my mother passed l should have felt an urge to stick a gun in someone's face and rob them. Now it makes perfect sense. What about the victims of this piece of crap? What about their "rough times ahead". I will pray for them. I will also pray for a long jail sentence for your brother so he will not do this again when he loses another member in your family.

Wow you all sound like idiots. That young man is going to get what he deserves. Jail and somebody robbing his anal cavity. Next the guy with great white flight. When you get where you are going its still going to be some blacks around there just how it is. Let's just hope you don't mind your grandchildren half black. Next ladies ah yeah that's some ghetto stuff going on there in that area. I took my children and ran right to the white side..opps I meant right side. See denial is the first part then anger as so forth and so on!!! Meaning get it together ya town is messed up because of the black youth. No home training they will receive butt hole training. Thanks have a great day!
