Police Looking For Two Men and Woman They Believe Robbed a 16-Year-Old Kid While He Was Waiting For the Bus

Phoenix police are looking for three people they say robbed a 16-year-old kid on December 10.

The unidentified teen was waiting at the bus stop on 7th Street and McDowell when two men walked up to him, held him at knifepoint, and demanded he hand over a silver necklace he was wearing.

The necklace was worth about $40 -- probably not the heist the suspects had hoped for. Guess a lot of petty criminals really are that stupid!

The first suspect is described as a black male, early 20s, about 6 feet tall, wearing blue zip-up hoodie, white undershirt, blue sweat pants, black shoes, and a white wife-beater.

Suspect number two is described as a black male, early 20s, 6 feet tall, 160 pounds, beard and mustache, black beanie, and a long blue shirt.


A woman was also involved, police say. She's described as a 20-year-old black female, about 5 feet 6, 140 pounds, with pulled-back hair.

The three were last seen boarding bus #8041 heading eastbound on McDowell.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Phoenix Police
Department's Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or "SILENT WITNESS"
at (480) W-I-T-N-E-S-S.
