Wildwood Woman Robbed at Gunpoint at Stroke of Midnight
Police are searching for two possible suspects who allegedly robbed a woman at gunpoint Thursday outside her Wildwood home just after midnight. Search helicopters and canine units were brought in to assist.
A female victim told St. Louis County Police Department-Wildwood (6th) Precinct officers she was outside her garage when a male suspect came up and robbed her at gunpoint at 12:02 a.m. Thursday. The armed robbery occurred in a cul-de-sac at Medicine Bow Drive and Gunnison Gorge Drive, which runs off Clayton Road about 1/4 quarter mile from Lafayette High School.
Officers surrounding the area determined two suspects were involved in this robbery.
The woman reported the first suspect was armed with a handgun, but it was not recovered at the scene. She said her purse was attached to a baby stroller, both of which were grabbed by the suspect.
She described the alleged robber was a light-skinned male in his late teens or early 20s. Authorities said the descriptions were "vague," but that the woman did not know the suspects.
No one is in custody, and the multiple-unit search has been suspended at this time.
The investigation is ongoing. It is now being handled by St. Louis County detectives in the Bureau of Crimes Against People.
Anyone with additional information or leads about this armed robbery should call the Wildwood Precinct at (636) 458-9194.
