The University of Alabama Police Department is searching for a pair of men accused of trying to rob someone sitting in a car at some apartments behind the Publix on University Boulevard.
The victim told police the suspect’s vehicle pulled into the parking lot behind theirs shortly after midnight Sunday and then opened the victim’s driver’s side door. One of the suspects demanded the victim’s phone and other items, while a second suspect also approached and demanded the victim’s property.
Neither suspect brandished a weapon, and the victim told police they didn’t steal anything before fleeing in a black Dodge Charger, which was last seen turning east onto Riverside Drive.
The suspects were described as follows:
- A black man between 20 and 25, around 5 feet 9 inches or 5 feet 10 inches tall, with an average build and hair styled into short twists or dreadlocks.
- A man of unknown race and age, also around 5 feet 10 inches tall, with an average build.
If you have any information about the incident, please call UAPD at 205-348-5454 or Tuscaloosa Crime Stoppers at 205-752-7867.
