Two people robbed a man at his real estate business in the 1300 block of East Ridge Pike Thursday morning.
According to Plymouth Township Police, two people entered the business shortly before 9 a.m. after they were “buzzed in” under the guise of seeking a home to rent. When the victim said that there were no available rental units, the first suspect, a black man, about 5-foot-11, with a heavy build, wearing a white T-shirt and light colored pants, pointed a dark colored handgun at the victim.
The second suspect, whose sex is unknown, but was wearing a light colored hooded sweatshirt, and a “Middle Eastern-style” or “Dashiki style” top with vertical stripes, tied the victim to his desk chair, while the first suspect reached into the victim’s pockets and took out all of his money.
Of note, the first suspect made no effort to cover his face, and it was exposed during the entire robbery.
The suspects then fled out the same door in which they entered, toward and alley behind the business.
Anyone who has any knowledge or information about the identity of the suspects is asked to call the Plymouth Township Police Detective Division at 610-279-1901 or email Detective Anthony Costello at ACostello@plymouthtownship.org
