Whitehall: Man arrives home to surprise: armed robbers

A man told Whitehall police he was robbed at gunpoint in his apartment late last month.

The victim told police he was robbed at gunpoint upon returning to his apartment. He said a man pointed a gun at him, ordered him to the ground and demanded the location of guns and money. A woman then approached and pointed a gun at the victim while the man searched the apartment, police said.
