A man and his wife were victims of an armed robbery last night while they were walking home on Beacon Avenue South.
Just after 8:00 pm, the couple was walking in the 4700 Block of Beacon Avenue South when two unknown suspects came running up to them. One of the suspects was holding a gun and demanded the husband’s wallet. Fearing for her life, the wife ran across Beacon Avenue South trying to get some help. The victim gave over his wallet and the suspect ripped a chain from his neck. The two suspects then ran around the corner and got into a older, full sized sedan occupied by another suspect and sped off westbound, crossing Beacon, almost striking the wife in the road.
A number of officers responded to the location but unfortunately neither the car or the suspects were located. The man and his wife were not injured.
The suspects were described as two black males, one is 6′ 2″, thin, armed with a handgun, wearing a black t shirt and blue jeans. The other was 5’5″, medium build, wearing a black t shirt and jeans. The car was described as an older full size sedan, with tinted windows, white with violet paint on the sides.
