Unfortunately we had another robbery but on a positive note the victim was quick to call 911 and gave good descriptions. Great communication by the officers and detectives, we managed to arrest both suspects.
On May 28th at approximately 2035 hours a female victim was robbed by two black male suspects. The victim observed the two suspects walk past her and then moments later turn and start walking back in her direction. This behavior was odd to the victim and she became suspicious of their actions.
Before she could do anything the suspects were upon her and one pointed a handgun at her and the other was attempting to take her purse. She screamed and struggled with the suspects which caused them to flee on foot taking her purse and contents.
The victim approached a citizen whom allowed her to use their cell phone to call 911. The victim provided a detailed description of the suspects and location of the incident.
Units were in the area and searched for the suspects. Two suspects were located along with other evidence of the crime. Shortly after this a positive identification was made of the suspects and they were arrested.
The suspects were charged with robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
