Martin Luther King Drive in Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A woman said she was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint by two men in Greensboro early Thursday morning.

The victim told police she had stopped her vehicle near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Dorothy Brown Street around midnight when she was approached by two unknown men.

The woman said one of the suspects showed a handgun and demanded money from her.

After stating that she did not have any money, the suspects assaulted the victim and stole an undisclosed amount of money.

The first suspect was described as a black male, 6’1” tall, with a high fade hair cut, wearing a black tee shirt with a graffiti style logo on the front and was armed with a handgun.

Police provided an incomplete description of the second suspect.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.

    When will peoplelearn to avoid any MLK Drives they ever see in the United States of America! The street is full of gang bangers and wanna be’s….nobody ever good lives on that road or drives on it. Tkea mile detour if you have to, especially at night!

    Why did she stop her car? Was she getting out, waiting for someone, what? You think she would have said.
    Whatever the reason, NOT the place to drive through much less stop.

  • Common Sense 101

    These days, the neighborhood really doesn’t matter–crime is running rampant throughout the state. It doesn’t matter if you’re walking or in your vehicle, there are some common caveats anyone with common sense should follow.

    1. When approached by 2 unknown males, while in your car, LEAVE. By hook or crook. If you have to “safely” run a red light to get out of harms way, most officials will understand. Even if they don’t, a ticket is better than being robbed or shot–at least you know who’s taking your money.

    2. If on foot, veer off the path to see if they mirror your movements, if they do, you’re the target, turn around and make tracks.

    3. If you have no criminal record, get a gun. I suspect some of these “handguns” are pellet guns–they make them to look very realistic these days.

    4. If you have a criminal record, carry your rap sheet around, so you can show them how bad you can be.

    If she had a gun herself then she could have defended herself. Why do women go out at night without a firearm? We DO have a right to bear arms. And why on earth did she stop? We aren’t getting the full story here.
