On Saturday night, around 12:15am, we received a call for a robbery that just occurred in Brentwood Forest. Two subjects approached the victim as he got out of his car. They displayed a handgun. They left the scene with the victim’s wallet and his vehicle. The victim was not injured.
We believe the victim was a random target. A similar robbery occurred in University City earlier the same evening. We are working with U City Police to determine if the crimes are related. The victim’s car was recovered Sunday afternoon after it was involved in a hit-and-run accident in St Louis city.
Our officers are investigating this crime and we will update you when pertinent information is available.
