WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Police are looking into an armed robbery that happened Sunday in the 2800 block of Morgan Street, according to a spokesperson for the Wilmington Police Department.
A female was reportedly standing in front of a home talking with a friend, when a dark, four-door sedan pulled up with three men.
One of the men got out and tried to take a plastic bag the woman was holding. She tried to fight back, but was overpowered and lost the bag to the suspect.
Witnesses said two of the men had handguns, but the suspect who took the bag never mentioned a weapon.
The suspects then fled in their vehicle.
