Police investigate South Side robbery

Police are investigating a robbery in the city’s South Side on Oct. 22, 2019.

Two people are accused of robbing a man and stealing his car early Tuesday on the city’s South Side.

Pittsburgh police responded to a robbery at the intersection of East Carson and South 20th streets at about 4:15 a.m., public safety spokesman Maurice Matthews said.

The man told officers that he was robbed by two men after parking his car. He said one of the suspects appeared to have a gun under his shirt. It was unclear if the suspects took money or personal items from the man.

They fled the scene in his car. Police were able to locate it shortly after in the Knoxville area, Matthews said, and the suspects crashed into a retaining wall and ran.

Officers apprehended a juvenile suspect, who was treated at Children’s Hospital for minor injuries and taken into custody.

The search continues for the second suspect.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
