Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 3 were called to the 100 block of South 19th Street for a robbery just after 11 p.m.
When responding officers arrived on scene they spoke with two male victims who told them they were walking when they were approached by a male who asked them for directions.
After providing directions to him, the victims said the suspect then pointed a gun at them. As the male kept the gun pointed, a female suspect then joined in and both she and the male suspect began going through the victims’ pockets.
The suspects managed to steal two iPhones and a wallet before fleeing toward Jane Street.
The phones were later recovered in different locations. The wallet has not yet been found.
The male suspect is described as between 6 feet and 6 feet 4 inches tall with a very thin build and wearing a dark Nike jacket. The female suspect was wearing a black Batman t-shirt with a white long-sleeved shirt underneath. She had medium length brown hair held back with a black headband.
Police are investigating.
