DeKALB – Two men stole cash and a cell phone at gunpoint from two other men about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, DeKalb police said.

The victims parked near an apartment complex in the 800 block of Russell Road, DeKalb, got out of the car and were approached by two men, Lt. Bob Redel said. One of the men pulled out a handgun and demanded money and illegal drugs, but the two victims told him they had none and tried to walk away.

The robbers followed the two men, and ended up taking cash, a wallet and the phone from one of them, Redel said. The robbers fled on foot.

“No one was injured; no one fought back,” Redel said.

The gunman was 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a medium build, while the other man was between 6 feet and 6 feet, 3 inches tall with a slender build. Both were black and wearing dark clothing, Redel said.

Anyone with information about the case should contact DeKalb police at 815-748-8400, or DeKalb County Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272. They also can make anonymous reports through iWatch, a free smartphone app, or through the iWatch website, www.cityofdekalb.com/Police/iwatch.htm.
