On April 9, 2024, two victims were lured into an apartment in the 2900 block of North Main Street by a female suspect they met on social media. Once they arrived, two male suspects emerged from hiding and demanded property from the victims at gunpoint. One of the suspects struck a victim with a handgun. The suspects were observed driving a 2008, 4-door, blue Chevrolet Malibu.
