Two sought in Durham armed robbery

Posted August 3, 2012

— Police are looking for two men wanted in connection with an armed robbery that happened at a Durham home Wednesday.

Investigators say two men were held at gunpoint at a home on Dupree Street shortly before 3 p.m. when two other men stole several items, including jewelry, computers, cash, credit cards and phones.

The victims described one of the men as being black, with a dark complexion, heavy build and standing 6 feet 2 inches tall. His hair was in "messy corn rows" that ended at his neck, and he was wearing a baggy white T-shirt, blue jeans, a purple shoestring tied around his waist and blue sneakers.

They did not see the other man, police said.

Anyone with information that could help investigators is asked to contact the Durham Police Department at 919-560-4415, extension 29303, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers do not have to identify themselves.

    It will help a lot if they tear down that crime breeding area called McDougald of Lawson.
