Police report two suspects of an unknown age used a “simulated gun” to rob a 37-year-old man of his car and cellphone on 23rd and Shotwell streets early Thursday morning.

At around 3:45 a.m., the suspects approached the victim while he was stopped an intersection. One of the suspects pretended to have a gun and told the victim to get out of his car. The suspects jumped into the car and took off eastbound on 23rd Street.

No injuries were reported. No arrests have been made.

Hot Prowl

Two twenty-something males awoke Wednesday morning to find their door ajar and their bike and laptop missing at their place on 17th and Guerrero streets. Police believe the “hot prowl” burglary — when a thief enters a dwelling while residents are inside — took place between 11 p.m. on Tuesday and 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.

No injuries were reported, and no arrest has been made.
