A 55-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint Friday night after two armed suspects entered the office of a St. Louis nonprofit and demanded the man’s wallet.
Officers with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department responded to a call about a “hold-up” at about 10:35 p.m. Friday at the Cure Violence office located at 5504 Natural Bridge Rd.
According to the incident summary, the victim was sitting at his desk when he heard the front door open. Seconds later, two armed men entered the victim’s office and pointed their handguns at him.
The suspects took the victim’s wallet, ran from the business and drove off in a silver Buick LaCrosse.
