Robbery suspects jump into car, point gun at driver

DES MOINES- A Des Moines woman had a gun pointed at her after two suspects jumped into the back of her car, according to a police report. 

Tayler Sibert, 20, was headed west on University Avenue after leaving Mid-K Beauty Supply around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday night before turning left onto 11th Street. Sibert slowed due to street construction when two suspects got into the back seat of her car. 

One suspect pulled a hand gun with an extended magazine and pointed it at Sibert's stomach. The suspects took Sibert's backpack that held her laptop before having Sibert stop drop them off at 1179 11th Street. 

The suspects got into a silver Jeep, which ended up trailing Sibert's car until she reached 1st Street and Seneca. Sibert recognized one of the suspects, 17-year-old- Dji Johnson, from her boyfriend's Facebook page. After police located the suspects, Sibert was able to positively identify Johnson, as well as 19-year-old Saivon McGruder. 

McGruder was arrested and charged with two counts of 1st Degree Robbery. McGruder had previous arrest warrants for three additional counts of 1st Degree Robbery, one count of 2nd Degree Robbery and one count of 2nd Degree theft. McGruder is currently being held at the Polk County Jail on a $95,000 cash-surety bond.
