A woman was robbed in her home on Sycamore Street at 1:40 a.m. on Saturday, police report. The 53-year-old resident had been inside the apartment with a woman in her early 30s, when the younger woman accused the older of having taken her phone. The older woman denied this, and the younger woman left. The door was left open, and a few minutes later when the resident went to close her door, the younger woman had returned and brought a roughly 40-year-old man with her.
The pair pushed open the door, and the man grabbed the resident and told her he wanted the younger woman’s cell phone. The younger woman, meanwhile, punched the resident in the face several times. Upon releasing the victim, the suspects took her money and cell phone. The man then threw the victim’s cell phone to the ground, damaging it, before the pair fled.
The victim refused medical attention for her injured face and neck, and no arrest was made.
