Robbers Assault Man, Take His Wallet in South Side

A 26-year-old man was robbed of his wallet by three armed men in the city's South Side neighborhood Thursday evening, the Easton Police Department reports.

Police were called to the scene of a robbery in progress in the 100 block of West St. Joseph Street at about 6:12 p.m., where the victim reportedly told police he was approached by three men, one of who demanded his wallet. The other two men then punched him several times, police say the victim told them.

It is believed the suspect that demanded the wallet was armed with a handgun. All three reportedly fled south immediately after the incident toward the 100 block of West Nesquehoning Street, police said.

The three suspects have been described as:

A black male, approximately 30 years of age, about 5-feet-10-inches tall weighing about 250 pounds, with short hair, wearing a dark sweat shirt at the time of the robbery

A light-skinned black male, thought to be in his late 20s, standing about 6-feet-1-inch, weighing about 180 pounds, with short hair, wearing a long sleeved red shirt at the time of the robbery

A dark-skinned black male, with short hair, who was wearing a black hood at the time of the robbery

The victim did not require medical treatment, police added. 

The Easton Police Department says it is continuing to investigate, and anyone with information about the robbery should call Det. Charles Leauber at 610-250-6780, or the EPD Tipline at 610-250-6635. Callers can remain anonymous.
