Upon arrival, officers made contact with an alleged victim, Aysia Whitmore. The Criminal Investigation unit was contacted and during their investigation learned that Whitmore was staying in room 308. The victim was previously acquainted with three suspects who were later found arrested.

Hours earlier, on January 28, 2016 at approximately 11:45 PM, Whitmore stated she was getting off the elevator and was walking to her room. As she rounded the comer in the hallway, she was confronted by 41-year-old Kimberly Trotter of Council Bluffs. Trotter proceeded to push Whitmore up against the wall and then produced a handgun. Trotter then went through Whitmore’s pockets and retrieved the key to room 308. As Whitmore and Trotter walked down the hallway, Whitmore noticed 25-year-old Jennifer Trotter and 23-year-old Tyrell Jones waiting by the door to room 308. These three suspects then directed Whitmore into the room. Once inside, Whitmore was taken into the bathroom where she was stripped of her clothing and forced to lay down in the bathtub. Kimberly Trotter then allegedly struck Whitmore with the gun several times in the face. Jones then came back into the bathroom and stuck a hand gun up to VVhitmore’s face and threatened to kill her if she moved.

When Jones walked out of the bathroom, Whitmore attempted to take cover under the sink counter. Jennifer Trotter then came into the bathroom and began assaulting Whitmore by kicking her. The suspects then left the room after taking her cell phone and numerous personal items. The victim was able to provide a possible vehicle description (Blue 2000 Chevy Tahoe) that the suspects were driving.

    It pisses me off to see thugs sporting Bob Marley hair, as if they’re some kind of peaceful Rastafarian. Shave that shit off and reveal your prison tattoos.

      You should talk about pissing people off. Is there anything in life that you don’t proclaim you’re an expert at or know everything about?

      Tyrell Jones! This guy never had a chance in life. His mom was a crack whore and his dad never stuck around for a DNA test before he was off with a another whore! He grew up on the rough streets started drinking and doing drugs. Met some white trash and started pimping them hoes! Tyrell never finishe the 8 th grade and can’t even spell his mother middle name. He has 10 kids by 8 baby mommas and has never see 7 of them. Tyrell is the poster child of what is wrong with the African American community. Black children raised by a child with no true guidance in a white society that hates them simply because they have color in thier skin. A society that is rigged to assist the black man to reach its ultimate goal of imprismemt or death. Tyrell’s only mistake is that he was born black in America! He was taught to hate himself and to believe he was never to amount to anything other than making fast money pimping woman who are as oppressed as he is. In so many ways they are victims. So forgive me if I don’t rant and rave or even agree with your rendition of his hair. In the sceme of things, that is the least of his worries.
