On July 23 around noon, a woman was robbed at gunpoint by two males in the 800 block of Whitehall Street. The woman had just made a purchase inside a store, and the suspects were in line behind her. As she left, they followed her outside and robbed her of money and her cell phone. They then fled on foot toward Lincoln Courts.
the suspects were captured on video surveillance inside the store, and images are released in an attempt to identify them. One suspect was described as a black male of average height with short twists in his hair. He was wearing a red and white shirt with black sleeves. The other suspect was taller and thin with long dreads wearing a black and white soccer style jersey with the number "80" on the front and back. They were last seen in the area of Lincoln Courts.
