Two club-goers were robbed near Dallas’ gay entertainment district over the weekend.
The first robbery occurred at midnight on Saturday when a 30-year-old woman was punched in the back and in the right hand in the 3900 block of Cedar Springs Road.
The woman was leaving Sue Ellen’s and was walking down the sidewalk when the attack happened, according to the address listed in the Dallas police incident report. She was “alone in a partially lit area,” the report states.
The suspect took her purse and fled in a white SUV. He is described as a black male in his late 20s and about 6 feet tall.
The woman waited until she reached a friend’s house before calling 911. She was not injured.
The second robbery occurred in the 3300 block of Throckmorton Street around 11:20 p.m. Sunday.
A 36-year-old woman was walking to Station 4 with a friend when a Hispanic male in his 20s pointed a gun at them and took their property, Dallas police spokeswoman Sherri Jeffrey told Instant Tea. The man got away with $600 in cash, according to the report. He is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with a medium build.
