Wilmington police are investigating an armed robbery that happened Thursday night.
Two 26-year-old men were held at gunpoint in the 4200 block of Birchwood Drive at about 11:50 p.m., according to Wilmington Police Department Spokeswoman Cathryn Lindsay.
The victims reported they first saw the suspects at a Market Street convenience store where they went to make a purchase, Lindsay said. As they walked north on Birchwood Drive, the same men approached the victims from behind bushes.
A suspect reportedly hit one of the victims with a handgun, Lindsay said. The suspects took a wallet from the victims and ran from the area.
Both suspects are described as black males with brown eyes, between the ages of 19 and 25. One suspect is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds. He had on a multi-colored hat over dreadlocks. The second suspect is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. Both suspects wore black baggy pants with a dark shirt pulled over their faces.
