Man robbed at gunpoint

Two robbers escape with his wallet, phone and keys

A man was robbed of his cell phone, keys and wallet in the carport of his apartment complex in the early hours of Thursday morning, police said.

The victim, a 36-year-old Mountain View man had just pulled into a parking spot at his apartment complex, located in the first block of Showers Drive, police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said. As he was getting out of his car, two men approached him, showed him a black handgun and demanded his things.

Both of the assailants' faces were covered, but judging by their voices the man told police he thought they may have been as young as 15 years old, Wylie said. The robbers wore dark clothing and both stood about 5 feet 8 inches tall and were of medium build.

After taking the man's things they fled on foot, Wylie said. Police did not locate any suspects in the crime. No one was injured.

If you live in that complex, in that neighborhood, you really can't be surprised if someone robs you. You just can't.
