Posted at 3:56 PM, Mar 21, 2017

Three people are wanted for a robbery at gunpoint earlier this month.

The evening of March 9, a male and a female were walking in the 4100 block of East Cincinnati Avenue, near Lamb Boulevard and Sahara Avenue, when they were approached by a vehicle occupied by two men and two women.

The occupants of the vehicle exchanged words with the victims and after driving away, quickly circled back. The front passenger got out of the vehicle holding a black semi-automatic firearm.

Aiming the firearm at the male victim, the suspect ordered him to the ground and proceeded to go through his pockets taking personal items. Meanwhile, two black female adults exited the vehicle and began attacking the female victim; they took her necklace and house keys.

The male suspect is described as a dark-skinned African American between 24 and 27 years of age with dreadlocks, standing 5’8" and weighing about 190 pounds. One female suspect was described as African American between 20 to 30 years old, weighing about 170 pounds, wearing a light-colored wig. The second female suspect was also described as African American, approximately 20 to 30 years old and was seen wearing a dark-colored wig.

Anyone with any information about the identity or whereabouts of these three suspects is asked to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555.
