Young couple say they were robbed by man with a gun

Advertiser Staff

A young couple told police a man robbed them at gunpoint Sunday night at a Tantalus lookout area.

Police were looking into a complaint filed by a 19-year-old man and 17-year-old girl.

The victims said that a man who appeared to be 30 to 40 years old approached the driver's side of their car and shined a bright flashlight in their faces about 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

The two said the man pointed a gun at them and demanded money or drugs.

The man said he turned over cash while the girl said she handed over her wallet, after which the gunman got in a car and left.

Police said man and girl drove to the Longs Drugs store on Pali Highway to file a robbery complaint.

There were no injuries.
