THE COP SHOP
Couple robbed at knife point
Two people flagged down a police officer at the corner of Carroll Boulevard and Eagle Drive Thursday night and told the officer they had just been robbed. The 31-year-old woman and 29-year-old man said about 10:25 p.m. that a stranger had just threatened them with a knife in a nearby apartment complex parking lot and took their money. They said the man then got into a white SUV and sped away. An investigation is continuing.
