Police are searching for the men responsible for an armed robbery on the east side of the Springs early Thursday morning.

The victim was in a parking lot on the 2800 block of East Platte, near the intersection of Platte and North Circle, when an SUV pulled up beside him and his friends. Two of three occupants of the SUV got out and threatened the victims with guns, demanding money and personal items.

The victims were eventually able to escape the crooks, with three running away on foot while the fourth drove off.

The first suspect, who was carrying a shotgun, is described as a 50-year-old white man with gray hair, 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall with a medium build.

The second suspect, who was carrying a handgun, is described as a white man in his 30s, bald and thin, approximately 6 feet tall.

The third suspect never got out of the vehicle, but the victims got a good enough look at him to provide a description. He is said to be a Hispanic man in his early 20s, with dark hair.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    This is just another example of how our police are unable to protect us and our lawmakers continually trying to abolish our second amendment rights under the constitution. Had these victims brandished their own guns as a deterrence to the real criminals the police would have arrested them for felony menacing.

    I'll say it again: Nothing good happens on the street between 12:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.

    I don't think anyone of us knows what we would do if confronted with the same scenario as what happend last night. Everyone is different.

      True. As for me, I would not have waited around to see what they wanted, I would have taken off. Refuse to be a victim.

    Gee, I think if I was parked and strangers pulled up near me and got out and approached me I would drive off.
