The Messenger. 07.14.08 A Union City man has reported that he was robbed at possible gunpoint Sunday. The man reported he was riding his bicycle on Sunswept Drive to 3J’s when a single black male stopped him in the 300 block and asked for change for a $5 bill. The victim reported he didn’t have change and he proceeded to the store. On his way back, the victim stated there were two black males riding bicycles in the same direction as he was. When he tried to pass them, one of them pushed him off his bike and hit him in the face causing minor injury. The suspect then asked for the victim’s wallet and told the other suspect to get his gun out of his pocket. The victim said when he heard this he dropped his wallet on the ground. He said he never saw a weapon. The suspects then got on their bikes and headed west through East View Cemetery toward Miles Avenue. Police were not able to locate the subjects or any witnesses. The suspects are described as black males ages 15-18, one wearing a gray hoody and blue jeans and the other wearing blue jeans with no shirt.
