Two Robberies in One Day
Two robberies were reported in Lakewood on Wednesday.
In the first incident, a woman told police she was robbed behind John’s Diner on Detroit Avenue at around 1 a.m.
She said that the man — described as a white male in his mid-twenties, wearing a dark hoodie — knocked her down and took her purse. She didn’t say whether he had a weapon. She said when she got off the bus, the man told her he had been stabbed and needed help.
That’s when he robbed her.
The woman returned from work later in the day and found her purse on the front porch. The report didn’t say whether her items had been taken.
The other robbery took place at the Star Mart on Madison Avenue at around 7:45 p.m. A man told police that two white males — between the ages of 17 to 19 — wearing sweatshirts and ski masks robbed him at gunpoint.
Just last week, a woman was robbed at gunpoint on Ramona Avenue as she was walking to work.
