Wednesday, July 2, 2014

NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - Police are hoping surveillance video will help them catch two men who robbed two others on a New Castle street, taking a pepperoni roll and a soda pop from one of the victims.

Police say the victims were accosted about 12:40 a.m. Tuesday while walking south in the business district.

That's when police say one of the suspects approached, punching one of the victims in the mouth. After that happened, a second man produced a gun and demanded the men empty their pockets of any valuables.

That's when the robbers took the food from one victim and $40 from another.
