Armed men rob boys, 13 & 14, after pretending to be neighbors
Two men, one armed with a handgun, pretended to be neighbors of a pair of Pittsfield Township teenagers - then robbed them after the teens let them into their apartment Thursday night.
Pittsfield Township police said the suspects knocked on the door of an apartment in the 3000 block of Woodland Hills at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday.
Two boys, 13 and 14, were home at the time, police said. The suspects pretended to be neighbors in the Evergreen Apartments complex, and the boys let them inside.
Once inside, police said, one suspect displayed a handgun. The robbers herded the teens into the bathroom and demanded to know where they could find cash in the apartment.
The men escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The teens called police, and a parent returned to the apartment just after police arrived, according to officers. Neither was hurt.
Police are seeking information on the robbers. The suspect with the gun is described as black, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with a medium build. He wore a red bandana during the incident, and also wore a black and red shirt with a black hoodie sweatshirt over it.
The second suspect is black, about 21 years old, and the same height as his companion - just with a thinner build. He had a thin beard and wore a black hat with a “P” on it and all black clothing.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Pittsfield Police at 734-822-4911.
