Blotter: Lewisville police investigate aggravated robbery

Comments () A Text Size

Lewisville police are investigating a weekend aggravated robbery that occurred at an apartment complex in the 2200 block of Rockbrook Drive.

According to reports, the incident occurred around 7 p.m. Saturday after a man and woman reported they were confronted by two men in the parking lot. Police said that the men demanded the woman’s purse and keys to the couple’s 2005 Infinity QX56 vehicle. At least one of the men was armed with a pistol, reports show.

The couple complied with the request and the two men fled the scene in the Infinity.

Shortly after, police received a second call about a crash behind another apartment complex located in the 2100 block of South Uecker Lane. Officers arrived to find the stolen Infinity near a wooded area along with several items from the stolen purse.

Police conducted a search of the wooded area with the Lewisville police canine and a Department of Public Safety helicopter. The suspects, police said, have not been located.
