A female victim in her twenties reported today that as she was walking on Winchester Street around 12:30 AM she was robbed. She stated she was walking from Beacon Street towards Kelton Street when a vehicle approached from the opposite direction and stopped beside her. The driver was described as a middle aged light skinned black female who engaged the victim in a conversation asking for directions. While the victim was talking to the driver, a male subject walked past the victim and continued walking. When the victim resumed walking she spotted the same male subject standing near the intersection of Winchester and Fuller Streets. The male subject is described as being a middle aged black man, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt. As the victim walked past the male subject he displayed a silver handgun and demanded her money. He then reached into her shoulder bag and took some cash and keys. He then walked away towards Beacon Street, telling the victim to walk in the opposite direction. A short time later as the victim continued walking the car returned. The same operator pulled alongside and asked if the victim was alright. The subject said she was and the vehicle left the area.
