GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are looking for information in a pair of armed robberies that were reported early Wednesday morning in Greensboro.

The first incident was reported shortly before 4 a.m. at 1512 17th St. The victim told police she was backing out of her driveway when a silver car drove up and blocked her in. A man got out of the vehicle, displayed a handgun and demanded money. A second man then got out of the suspect vehicle and took the woman’s purse from her car. The suspects then drove away toward Summit Avenue.

The second incident was reported shortly after 4 a.m. at 100 Sunset Circle. Police say the victim had just parked his vehicle at the address when the suspects pulled in behind him in a silver car. Both suspects got out of the car, after which one of them approached the victim, displayed a handgun and demanded money. The armed suspect then struck the victim in the face with his hand. The suspects left soon afterward without obtaining any property. They were last seen headed north on Elm Street.

Ample suspect descriptions were not available.

The suspect vehicle was described in both cases only as a silver car. The car may have had Florida tags, police said.

Police say the victim in the second incident suffered a “very minor” injury as a result of being struck.

Anyone with information about either case is asked to call Crimestoppers at 373-1000.
