Not targeted to cyclists specifically, but a number of pedestrians. I know several people here live in the area, please be alert. Zone 4 alert here.

I have no idea why, but police blotters have always fascinated me, maybe it’s the Jerry Springer Effect (Thank God It Wasn’t Me). I had no idea that Pgh’s was online.

Thank you for the link and the heads’ up.

This is the email the RSCA sent us this morning.

As you may have heard, two more incidents have taken place, a robbery of a store near the Forbes/Braddock intersection last Friday and one attempted robbery last night at Hutchinson and LaClair, by what appears to be the same two perpetrators as in the earlier incidents (two young African American males, one taller than the other, slight build, who get away in a white or silver medium-size sedan).

It’s ok, the Zone 4 Alert states they are only actors

“…and the actors are reported to be armed with a silver colored handgun.”

Well, these guys are armed, and they did knock one of the victims in the back of the head with the pistol. I hope they get caught soon.

I’ve been robbed at gunpoint before (not here) and it definitely sucks.

I have to admit being a little suspicious when a silver SUV with their window down pulled up next to me at Race and Pennwood last night and didn’t pull all the way up to their own stop strip.

Well, looks like one guy has been arrested, but there may be more than just 2 actors.
