Police report WAS filed
Date of occurrence: 6/16/2011
Approx time: 12:45am
Nearby street intersections: 9th st and Alexander Alley
I was awoken to someone knocking at my door. I was not expecting anybody, so it was very strange. After carefully determining that it was a friend who was knocking, I answered the door. My friend notified me that he and another friend were just robbed at gunpoint in the alley where 9th St. & Alexander Alley intersect.
They were walking from Sycamore South on 9th, the thief was walking North on 9th. The thief continued to walk North on 9th towards Sycamore after the incident. Nobody was injured, but the thief took everything, keys, cell phones, wallets, ect. The police were called and came quickly, but the thief was not caught.
