Ithaca Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred on the 900 block of West State Street on Nov. 2, according to an Ithaca Police Department press release. The police received a report at around 3:40 p.m. that two men, displaying at least one handgun, had robbed two victims of cash and personal items.
The suspects then left the area on foot, and neither of the victims were physically injured. Police believe that the victims were not randomly targeted.
Both suspects were described to police as Hispanic males, around 20-years-old, 6-feet-tall and slim, with dark medium-length braided hair. One suspect was said to be wearing a red jacket, and the other a white hooded sweatshirt.
Officers reviewed surveillance footage from nearby businesses, but did not say whether the footage offered any information relevant to their investigation.
