The Winchester Police Department is investigating a Tuesday night armed robbery in a shopping center parking lot.
Police say two men and a woman who were sitting in their vehicle were approached by two men around 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Papermill and Weems Lane in Winchester.
One of the suspects asked for a cigarette, which one of the victims gave him.
Police say the suspect then opened the driver's door, displayed an unknown black handgun and demanded money. As the victims gave the men their money, police say he also took the keys from the vehicle ignition.
According to a police report, the two men ran away once they had the money.
A Virginia State Police K-9 unit tracked the suspects to an apartment complex on Roosevelt Boulevard, but police were unable to find the two men.
The suspects are described as one white man and one black man.
The white man is said to be in his 20s, around six-feet tall, and was wearing a black t-shirt, blue jeans and a dark-colored hat.
The black man is also in his 20s, five-foot-nine-inches tall, and wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jeans.
This incident is being investigated by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and Winchester Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers at 540-665-8477 or the Winchester Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at 540-545-4704.
Sounds like a local issue to me. I can understand local & State police. Anyone know what's going on here?
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
