Two armed men wearing masks robbed a group of people during a home invasion on 29th Street near Pine Avenue on Thursday morning, according to a Niagara Falls police report.
Victims told police the two robbers kicked in the front door about 11:20 a.m. and demanded money, according to the report. Most of the victims said both robbers had guns, but one victim told police one of the suspects had a knife, not a gun.
The robbers stole iPhones, a tablet, two necklaces and several hundred dollars in cash, victims told police. At least two of the victims, one of whom was arrested on a bench warrant, declined to cooperate with police, according to the report.
About three hours later, another victim from the home invasion approached a police officer in an alley near Whitney Avenue and 22nd Street and reported she was just robbed again at gunpoint by one of the suspects from the earlier robbery, according to a separate report. Several other victims were also in the area and all refused to provide statements to police, according to the report.
