KENMORE, N.Y. (WIVB) - A man standing near the trunk of his car was robbed by a pair who rode up on a bicycle and brandished a gun, Kenmore Police say.
The incident happened on Stillwell Avenue Thursday around 7 p.m. The victim told authorities he saw the two suspects pass him on a black BMX bike and watched as they turned around and headed towards him.
Police say one suspect, who was sitting on the handlebars, jumped off and pulled a pistol from his waistband. The victim told authorities the suspect stated, "What's up? This is not the time to act soft" and demanded the victim empty his pockets.
Both suspects are described as young black men in their late teens with skinny or toned builds. The suspect with a weapon was wearing a white t-shirt and khaki shorts.
Police say after stealing an iPhone from the victim, the suspects biked towards Winchester. A neighbor on Stillwell told officers he saw the suspects pull up next to a four-door, red-colored sedan parked on Winchester.
The witness said the suspect on the handlebars got in the vehicle, which drove off, while the suspect still on the bicycle pedaled off in the direction of Crosby Fields.
