Two University Park residents were victims of an armed robbery about 12:15 Wednesday morning, August 17. The incident occurred as the couple pulled into their circular driveway in the 3400 block of Potomac. As the couple exited their vehicle, three suspects quickly approached them on foot from a vehicle that had stopped nearby. One of the suspects immediately showed a handgun and demanded valuables. The suspects took a watch and a purse, then got back in their vehicle and quickly left the location headed north on Auburndale.
The victims, a 46-year-old man, and a 29-year-old woman were not injured in the incident.
The victims described the suspects as slender black males who are 5’ 7” to 5’ 11” in height. All three suspects were wearing ski masks and long pants. The suspect vehicle is described only as a black-colored passenger car.
The victims told officers they believed the suspects followed them home from a McKinney Avenue night spot.
