The victim, a minor male, was at the movie theater with his friends and family. The victim said he was approached by several males wearing full ski masks. The victim said one male placed a gun at his head and told him to remove his gold Gucci chain and then the suspects fled the area in a dark-colored Acura.

On Monday, Jan. 23,  police were dispatched to the area of Bordeaux regarding a robbery. The victims stated while in their home, they heard a knock on the door, and said the suspect said they had a package to deliver. The victim stated she opened the door and the suspect barged into the home and placed a “gun” to her face.
