This crime shocks me because this is a park that my wife and I visit often with our dogs because the dog park at Canyon View Park is awesome. But it's alarming to find out that four people were arrested this past Thursday (October 29th) at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction for aggravated robbery according to KKCO.

The call to authorities came in shortly before 7 a.m. last Thursday morning from a victim in the park who had their wallet stolen. Things got a lot more dangerous quickly as the robbery suspects jumped in a vehicle to get away the victim got in a vehicle and the chase was on.
