Armed Street Robbery

Two men in their 30′s were robbed at gunpoint on their way home yesterday morning on Capitol Hill.

On August 3rd at approximately 3:30 a.m. two adult male victims were walking home on the east side sidewalk in the 1600 block of 11th Avenue when they were approached by three black male suspects.  One suspect brandished a handgun and demanded all their belongings.  The suspects stole the victims’ wallets, cash, and cell phones.  The suspects then fled the scene heading southbound through Cal Anderson Park.

Responding officers were unable to locate the suspects, all of whom remain at large.

The suspects are described as follows: Suspect #1 is a black male, late teens to early 20′s, large amount of hair, 150 lbs., and wearing red boxers underneath blue jeans.  Suspect #2 is a black male, 5’7″ tall, 120 lbs., wearing a dark windbreaker with a red stripe down the sleeves.  There was no detailed description of suspect #3.  Witnesses believe the suspects may be East African and spoke English with an accent.
