Two recent robberies of individuals in Uptown may be related, according to Dallas police. These holdups are in addition to an attempted holdup at Uptown Station that we reported earlier in the week.

• On Tuesday, June 19, at approximately 9 p.m., a woman was walking alone in the 3200 block of Hall Street when she was confronted by a man who asked her for directions. During the exchange, two additional men walked up behind her and placed a knife to her back. The suspects made her remove the contents from inside her purse and took her wallet and two rings before fleeing.

According to DPD, the suspects’ descriptions are:

Suspect 1: Black male, light complexion, approximately 27 years of age, with a shaved head. Medium build, approximately 5 feet, 8 inches, wearing a purple Polo shirt with dark pants.

Suspect 2: Black male, dark complexion, approximately 25–27 years old with corn row hairstyle, gold edging on front teeth, with a full set of gold teeth on the bottom row, and a tattoo on the upper arm.

Suspect 3: Black male, light complexion, approximately 25–30 years old with short hair.

• On Thursday, June 14, at approximately 11:15 p.m., a man and woman were walking in the 3300 block of Fairmount Street when they were approached by two black males. During the encounter, one of the suspects displayed a handgun and made off with the woman’s purse.  The suspects fled the area on foot and were last seen running into a wooded area. A witness possibly observed these suspects getting into a white vehicle, possibly a Ford.

The suspects’ descriptions are:

Suspect 1: Black male, dark complexion, 5 feet, 11 inches, 175 pounds, possibly wearing dreadlocks, white shirt, white shorts with small revolver.

Suspect 2: Black male, light complexion 5 feet, 10 inches, 175 pounds, wearing tan cargo pants.

Police are not certain that the incidents are related.
