12-19-07 Robbery - Store Parking Lot

    Boise, Dec. 19, 2007 - Boise Police are investigating a report of a robbery in the parking lot of a shopping center in east Boise.

    At 5:15 p.m., officers responded to a call from a man who says he was held up in the parking lot of the shopping center at the 2600 blk of So. Broadway. The man tells officers he was walking to his car and was approached by two men who asked directions. The victim says when the men got closer, one pulled what looked like a handgun and demanded the victim's wallet.

    The two men then drove south on Broadway in what's described as a silver Volkswagen Jetta with a smoke colored cover on the license plate.

    Both suspects appear to be young white males in their 20's. The suspect who held the gun is described as having a shaved head and a goatee, and wore a grey T-shirt. The second suspect wore a white shirt.

    Officers are searching for the suspects, and for any other information that may relate to this crime. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
