FIRST ON WITN: Gunmen Jump Out Of Woods, Rob Victims

Greenville police are investigating an armed robbery that happened Thursday morning.

Officers say it happened on Arlington Blvd. and the Turtle Creek intersection just before 5:30 a.m.. Police say three men jumped out of the woods, one armed with a gun, and robbed two people at gunpoint.

Police say the victims were made to get on the ground as the thieves took cash and cell phones.

The description of the three suspects is vague, only they wore hooded sweatshirts and one had a surgical mask over his face.

    Everybody I know says that Greenville is the ghetto of North Carolina.

    I would like to suggest a theory (that I actually heard someone else say yesterday)that these men did nothing wrong. They aren't robbers. They're victims of our economy. In fact, they are merely "wealth redistribution specialists", probably working under a community organizer in the first tier of the new Obama administration's trickle up economic plan. They sound like go-getters. They were obviously up early, looking for work. Someone should hire these guys.

    I agree with everyone. LOVE the post by "Dont Tread On Me"! I encourage everyone to run dont walk to get a concealed carry permit while you can. The incoming administration and appointees are set to take away 2nd amendment rights. The criminals will still have their guns and we'll be helpless victims. Everyone please support our right to bear arms!!

    Mmm...Three men in hooded sweatshirts jump out of woods and rob a guy...two or three men in hooded sweatshirts shoot a guy in home invasion...I'm no detective but I can't help but wonder if the crimes are related.

    A.female... Carry that weapon with you, and become proficient with the way it handles. I, for one, am sick of things like this,and it is time to take the stand against trash ,like these two cowards.

    I have just obtained a concealed carry weapon... unfortunately, I only carry mace with me everywhere I go. Maybe I should start carrying the gun.
