A man who was allegedly robbed at gunpoint on West Airy Street in Norristown was later taken to a hospital for treatment for a wound sustained during the robbery, say police.
The victim told police that he had been standing on the 100 block of West Airy Street on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. when two African American men came over to him, one about 5’10” of an average build, and wearing a red hoodie, and the other about 5’08” of an average build, and wearing a black and grey hoodie, according to a Norristown police report.
The victim told police that the man in the red hoodie held a black handgun to the victim’s head, and the other man rooted through the victim’s pockets, and took $160 in cash and the victim’s cell phone, say police.
