Two people suffered robberies on Wednesday, with no arrests made in either case.
The first robbery took place at about 3:20 p.m., when two men in their early twenties approached another young man walking down 24th street near Lilac Alley. The two men punched their victim repeatedly, before one pulled out a knife and brandished it at the victim. The other suspect then demanded the victim’s money and phone, which he handed over. The men then told their victim to leave, and he fled, suffering a bruised cheek and forearm.
Over at 15th and Guerrero at 10:45 that night, a 22-year-old man was riding his skateboard down Guerrero street when four men around 20 years old came up behind him and knocked him to the ground. The men took the skateboard and left, leaving their victim with enough pain in his elbow to go to a local hospital.
