Police: Street robbery suspects armed with aluminum bat, gun


Police said they are searching for two street robbery suspects who were armed with an aluminum baseball bat and handgun.

The victim told officers he was walking with his girlfriend on Bland Drive in front of the Emerald Edge Apartment complex when two men approached just after 11:30 p.m. Monday.

The suspects demanded everything in his pockets before they fled toward the rear of Victory Lane with an Apple 15c, a pack of cigarettes, a lighter and $100 in cash.

Police searched the area with the assistance of a K-9. The dog tracked the suspects to a parking space on Victory Lane and stopped.

Police said they believe the suspects may have traveled to the Dayton area.

They are described as white, in their 20s, 5'10 to 6'0 and wearing "saggy" blue jeans.

One wore a red hoodie and had facial hair and a tattoo on his left hand.

The second suspect wore a dark gray or black hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Franklin Police Department: 937-746-2882.
