ECU Police are investigating a reported robbery that happened in downtown Greenville Halloween night. Police would not confirm any other details overnight.

Greenville Police say the activity downtown was "relatively uneventful," giving a nod to Mother Nature for the rain that kept things quieter than in years past. Police blocked off parts of downtown and beefed up their patrols on the street to keep the peace.
