Video shows men attack worker near downtown KC in broad daylight before stealing ATV


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police are looking for the men who attacked and robbed a 64-year-old maintenance worker Friday morning in Quality Hill.

A witness caught the attack on camera and shared the video with FOX4. You can see the footage in the video player above.

The video shows the maintenance worker plowing snow on a four-wheeler in the parking lot of HNTB Corporation at the corner of 12th and Jefferson streets. While the worker is doing his job, a silver Chevy pickup truck circles around and pulls up next to him.

The video captures the moments when two men who police believe are in their 20s get out of the truck and punch the maintenance worker several times before and stealing his dark green Suzuki four-wheeler.

In the video, you see the four-wheeler heads west with the pickup trailing behind with the door open.

FOX4 showed the video to Joe Perez who has worked in Quality Hill for 20 years. He said he’s always felt safe in the neighborhood.

“Honestly, I’ve never seen or heard anything like that before, especially in broad daylight,” Perez said.

FOX4 searched the KCPD crime map and found two reports of car break-ins in the last month within a 3-block radius.

The 64-year-old who was attacked is OK, and the building’s security is on alert. Perez said the robbery is a reminder to always be aware of your surroundings even at work.

“If you’re working downtown, keep your eyes open,” Perez said. “It doesn’t happen too often, but you shouldn’t expect that something like that might not happen.”

Call KCPD at 816-234-5000 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477 if you have any information about this assault and robbery.
