The victim had no money with him on his jog, but he offered the men his iPod and the key to his home, both of which were refused by the men who attempted to rob him. The man holding the gun told the jogger to knock on the door of a home on Laverne, but the jogger refused. In the end, nothing was stolen from him.
A woman who was walking her dog near the intersection of Forest Park Boulevard and Delaware Avenue around 9:20 p.m. was approached by man who, along with companions, had been in a dark-colored SUV. The victim told police she thought the man who approached her was armed. He demanded her purse; she set it on the ground, then ran to a home on Forest Park, from which she called police to report the robbery.
She told police she lost about $30, three credit cards, two debit cards, a driver's license, a passport and some other papers in the purse, she said.
None of the descriptions of the men involved in the attempted robbery and robbery were detailed.
A dispatcher told police who were investigating the robbery of the woman that another caller at 9:38 p.m. said there was a suspicious black Chevy Blazer on Forest Park Boulevard with two men inside.
