Date night gone wrong
On Feb. 9, a robbery at gunpoint occurred and was reported to police. The victim went to Mickey’s Irish Pub to meet with a friend. The friend had been asking if the victim could help her with rent, which the victim had denied her multiple times. The suspect invited the victim over to her house, and he complied, but when they got there, a man came from the back of the house and pointed a gun at the victim. The gunman demanded the victim give him everything he had, and the victim gave him his wallet and cell phone. The suspects also went through his coat and took the victim’s handgun before telling him to leave. The victim left, leaving his shoes and stocking hat. The victim then proceeded to find a phone to call his parents and police. When police arrived, the vehicle belonging to the suspect was in view and police were able to pull it over.
