A man was paying for his gas at Git-N-Go, 2911 Douglas Ave., just after midnight on Jan. 15, when the suspect came in and displayed two semi-automatic handguns, demanding money from the register. The patron ran out of the store to call police. After taking all the money from the register, the suspect left on foot. The K-9 unit was able to pick up the suspect’s scent from a hat he left behind. They tracked him for a while, but lost the scent. Video surveillance was confiscated.
HOME VIDEOS… OF BEING ROBBED
A man posted to Craigslist that he was selling his iPad for $400. A potential buyer asked him to meet him at the 1400 block of Sampson around 1:15 p.m. on Jan. 12. The man told police he had a bad feeling about the two “buyers” approaching, so he decided to record the deal with his phone. The video was from too far away to make out the faces of the men as they proceeded to punch him in the face and take his iPad.
EARLY MORNING MUGGING
A woman called police just after 7 a.m. on Jan. 12 claiming she’d been robbed at gunpoint. She said she was leaving for work at the 2700 block of Fleur Drive, when she saw a “clean, not homeless or dirty-looking” man sitting on the stoop. After she walked passed, he ran up behind her, shoved a revolver in her back and took her purse. CV
