Strong arm robbery downtown

On November 23rd, at approximately 7:37 pm, the victim called 911 to report a strong arm robbery.  The victim was at 3rd Avenue and Columbia Street when he was approached by two unknown black males and one  asked him if he could use his cell phone.  Although suspicious, the victim wanted to be helpful so he dialed the number the suspect wanted to call and held the phone out so he could talk.  The suspect then grabbed the phone and after a brief struggle, the victim let go to avoid any further injury.  The suspect grabbed the phone out of the victim’s hand.  Both suspects then fled on foot.  Officers responded to the area but could not locate the suspects.
