CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Two people are suspected of aggravated robbery after allegedly stealing a 69-year-old woman’s car in a Westwood neighborhood Saturday, according to Cincinnati police.

District 3 officers say the incident occurred on Werk Road around 7 p.m. when the suspects allegedly shoved the woman to the ground, pointed a handgun at her, and then drove off with her vehicle.

Cincinnati police Lt. Brent McCurley says officers were able to find the stolen car at a mini-market not far from where it was taken.

“It was equipped with an OnStar feature that was helpful in locating the vehicle later on,” he explained.

On Tuesday, the suspects were captured on video at the Mini-Mart located on the corner of Cavanaugh and McHenry Avenue.

Lt. McCurley says the two suspects, thought to be teens, are known to frequent the store.

If anyone has information on the two individuals, police ask that they call Detective J Turner at 513-263-8307.
