UP Police Respond to Armed Robbery

University Park police responded to an armed robbery that happened outside a home in the 3400 block of Potomac Avenue shortly after midnight Wednesday.

Police say three suspects approached a couple in the driveway as they got out of their vehicle and took a watch at gunpoint. 

The suspects then quickly got back into their vehicle, described as a black passenger car, and headed north on Auburndale, authorities say. The couple wasn’t injured.

Police describe the suspects as 5’ 7” to 5’ 11” in height, wearing ski masks and long pants.

Those with any information about the incident  call Lt. Curtis Ellenburg at 214-987-5354.
