Robbery

On July 25, 2015, a 38 year old Bloomfield resident was robbed at gunpoint of his cell phone, by 3 males wearing bandanas over their faces, on the 200 block of Ampere Parkway. The victim reported that he was walking home when the 3 males approached him and one of the suspects was holding what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic handgun.

The victim observed the vehicle drive away south on N 17th Street.

The victim was not injured in the robbery and the stolen cell phone was valued at approximately $100.00.

The suspects were described by the victim only as being: 3 black males, one with a grey hooded sweatshirt and red bandana over his face, one with a black hooded sweatshirt and black bandana over his face and one with a white tee shirt and black bandana over his face.
