Vehicular robbery
On Tuesday, Aug. 22 at approximately 4 a.m., a 25-year-old black male reported a robbery that had occurred at 1400 S. Gerritt St. The complainant said he was parked at the corner of 24th Street and Gerritt Street when he was approached by an unknown black male offender with a T-shirt wrapped around his face.
The offender, who was roughly 5-feet-8 with a medium build, stuck a black handgun in the complainant’s face and told him to get out of the car and empty his pockets. When the complainant exited his vehicle and was attempting to take his money out of his pockets, the offender got into his vehicle, a black Mitsubishi Mirage, and drove away.
The offender was last seen driving toward the 1600 block of South Gerritt Street and making a left on Tasker Street. The complainant stated he attempted to chase after his vehicle for a short distance before he saw a man sitting on his front steps, and the complainant asked the man to 911 for him.

Man followed, robbed at knifepoint
On Sunday, Aug. 20 at approximately 11 p.m., a 65-year-old white male was walking down Snyder Avenue toward 10th Street when he reportedly felt like someone was behind him. He turned around and observed two black males both with thin builds and in all black clothing wearing white sneakers. Next, one of the offenders put a knife to the complainant’s neck and demanded, “Give me what you got.” The complainant stated that he then handed the one of the offenders all of his money, while the other male offender went into his back pocket and took his wallet out. The male offender who took his wallet then took his access card, ATM card and phone, and then threw the wallet on the ground before both offenders fled the area. They were last seen running westbound on Snyder Avenue toward Broad Street.
