While reviewing crime reports this morning from the previous 24 hours, I noticed an incident summary that really caught my eye. It seems two young men were walking through Washington Park the other morning around 2:30 AM after their car became disabled when they were reportedly robbed at gun point by two subjects.
One of the victims told investigating officers the robbery suspects made off with a quantity of money and a nickel bag of marijuana.
Yep - you read that correctly. Our victim told officers the robbers made of with his money and marijuana.
No further commentary is necessary on my part here, though I will add officers circulating the area after we got the call failed to locate anyone matching the suspects' description. This case remains an open investigation.
