Whitehall: Hamilton Road market robbed at gunpoint

Whitehall police reported a robbery at La Michoacana, 166 S. Hamilton Road, at 9:05 p.m. July 1.

Employees told police two men with black scarves covering their faces entered the store. One man jumped over the counter, pointed a gun at an employee and demanded money.

The man threatened to shoot the victims and took an undisclosed amount of money, reports said. The two men ran outside and were met by two others, according to reports.

All four men ran south toward a nearby apartment complex, according to the report.

Police reported a robbery at 11:25 p.m. June 26 near East Broad Street and South Yearling Road.

A man told police he drove three men from a gas station at Central and Sullivant avenues to an apartment in the first block of Parklawn Boulevard. The driver said he had never met two of the men but knew the other casually and agreed to drive the men, for a fee, at his request.

After arriving in Whitehall, one of the men pointed a gun at the driver and struck him on the side of the head with it, reports said. The victim ran from the vehicle and the men reportedly stole it.

The vehicle was found parked in the same area at 9:45 a.m. June 27, according to reports.
