Wheeling Police are investigating a late night armed robbery that police say may have happened in the Fulton area of Wheeling.

According to a police report the alleged victim claims the robbery happened right around 10 o'clock Sunday night as he was walking to an Fulton area business for a bottle of water.

He claims he was approached in the alley of the 500 block of Fulton Street by three white males, one of whom had a handgun, pointed it at him and demanded he hand over the money he had on him. The alleged victim handed over his cash and says the 3 subjects then took off in a getaway car.

"The suspects fled in a car that was missing the bumper and had a hole in part of the vehicle as well. The victim believes it was, a foreign model; not a - not an American made car, so, that's being looked for by patrol units now," said Sgt. Gregg McKenzie

The first man is said to be a white male around 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 155 pounds, with black hair a beard, and wearing a cut-off t-shirt that reads "Cool Story Bro."

The second: a white male, about 6 feet 3 inches tall, and has a thin build. A description of the third person was not provided to police. All three are said to be in their early twenties.

If you have any information that could help police track down any or all of the three subjects in questions, you're urged to call our Lauttamus Security Crimefighters tipline at 1-800-223-0312, all calls remain confidential and you never have to leave your name.
