Man reports being robbed at gunpoint in Manchester parking garage
MANCHESTER – A 34-year-old Lynn, Mass., man told police he was robbed at gunpoint by two men early Wednesday about 2:30 a.m. in the parking garage at 555 Canal St.
The man said he was approached on the second level of the garage while he was talking on his cellphone. He said one of the men pressed what he believed was the barrel of a gun into his back and demanded money, his keys and cellphone.
The two men then attempted to get the victim to take them to his apartment in the building, but when the man said he didn't live there, they left him in an elevator.
The first man was described as a black male in his late 20s, with dreadlocks and a dark complexion. He was over 6 feet tall with a medium build, wearing a plain gray, hooded sweatshirt over a royal blue shirt that hung below the waist. The victim said he never saw the gun but believed the man had one.
The second man is a black male in his late 20s with a dark complexion. He was also over 6 feet tall and at least 250 pounds. He was wearing a light-colored, zip-up hooded sweatshirt with a small "Polo" emblem on the left chest. He also wore a dark-colored ball cap with a "B" on the front and dark gray pants.
Police say another person, possibly a female, may have been involved and was driving an older, black Mercedes sedan with New Hampshire plates.
