Police probe another Glassport robbery

Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, 1:31 a.m.
 

Police say a juvenile was robbed on Tuesday night in Glassport.

Police Lt. Ron Benoit said the victim reported that a man approached him in the 400 block of Plum Alley at about 9:30 and demanded money at gunpoint.

The victim complied and the robber departed. Police did not say how much money was stolen.

“We believe the victim knew who the actor was,” Benoit said. “We have a possible suspect identified.”

Allegheny County police are assisting an investigation of four robberies by three males on Sept. 20 in the vicinity of Glassport Memorial Stadium after a high school football game.

Benoit said investigators are trying to determine if Tuesday's incident is related.
