On January 8, 2014 an armed robbery occurred at 113 Jackson Street in the City. Two suspects both described as black males between the ages of 18 – 24, both wearing face masks, robbed a pizza delivery person at gunpoint.
A delivery had been set up for the address and upon the arrival of the delivery person, the two black males confronted the female delivery person inside the entryway of the building. One of the suspects displayed what appeared to be a handgun and stole (cash) from the female. They then fled the area on foot and were last seen running south on Jackson Street.
Officers combed the area on foot with the assistance of the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office K-9, however were unable to locate the suspects at that time. Detectives were called to scene and processed the scene.
