Over the weekend, an attempted robbery occurred in South Boston late Saturday night at approximately 1:00am. Two females were approached near 645 East Sixth Street by two black males wearing hoodies, carrying a possibly fake gun and tried to rob them. The suspects then fled. An off duty police office living in the area saw the suspects leave in a white minivan.

Additional patrols will be sent to the City Point neighborhood of South Boston. Just a few weeks ago, there was a similar attack on K Street.
On Friday, July 10th around midnight, a female South Boston resident was walking down K Street and was approached by two males driving in a car. One allegedly got out of the vehicle and approached the female holding a gun and demanding her purse and phone. The female handed over her purse and the two suspects drove away. In both incidents, police reports were filed with the BPD.
Be safe out there, Southie!
