CLIVE, Iowa -- The Clive Police Department has located a Good Samaritan who helped a victim of a robbery early Thursday morning.

Police say two separate people were robbed in the parking lot of the Mickey’s Irish Pub at 1800 NW 86th Street between 1:45 a.m. and 2 a.m.

The first victim says a man got into the front passenger side of his car and demanded money. The suspect hit him in the head several times with a handgun and ran away after stealing money.

The second victim was walking to his car when the suspect grabbed his cell phone and started punching him in the head. The suspect was believed to have a gun. He knocked the victim to the ground and ran away.

Both victims say they were attacked by a black male.

A Good Samaritan believed to be named “Graham” saw the injured second victim and helped him by rendering first aid and drove him to the hospital. Police say they think the man is currently or has in the past been in the military.

Police are now saying with the assistance of the local media, “Graham” heard that they wanted to speak to him. He stopped by the Clive Police Department on Friday afternoon to be interviewed by detectives.

Although they've already spoken to the Good Samaritan, police are still hoping someone else might have seen something or be able to provide more information on the crimes.
