A 19-year-old was victim of an armed robbery Monday night. Police are now searching for the men believed to be involved.

Witnesses told police that they drove by the scene just after 10 p.m. Monday night and saw the victim and suspects on the corner of South Carefree and Avondale. The victim’s hands were in the air as he was being robbed at gunpoint. According to officers, the victim had crashed his bike shortly before the robbery, and was walking it down the street when the suspects accosted him. Police say the suspects fled towards North Murray when the witnesses drove past. A K-9 Unit was dispatched, but was unable to track the suspects down.

The suspects have been described as black men in their late teen or early 20s, both about 5-foot-10 with thin builds. Both were wearing hoodies; one was dressed in a gray hoodie with stripes and the other wore a dark-colored hoodie. Both men were carrying handguns.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the Colorado Springs Police Department, or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    My question is...do the bad guys hide behind every bush in Colorado Springs? I'm saying that, because a few weeks ago a man broke down in his car and got robbed. A lady was waiting for a cab and got robbed. Another lady got something out of her car and got robbed. An old man got his bicycle stolen while shopping and now this story.

    The stupidity of you people amazes me.....first off....22% of serial killers are black...blacks only make 16% of the pop..so if 85% of the serial killers were white..then it would be even...do you understand that? Blacks commit 47% of the murders...while only account.ting for 16% of the population. It amazes me that you forget how many more whites there are..if course there are going to be more numbers wise...but going off percentages blacks molest...commit incest...murder....rape...and rob more....get your facts straight morons.

    Black males make up 35.4% of the prison population while black males only make up 10% of the general population. Nuff said.

    I don't believe I have ever heard of CSPD K-9 tracking and capturing a suspect in a robbery case. Why bother, do they need the exercise or just a way to justify the expense? I take that back, maybe once out of every 50 they actually find someone with the help of their highly trained sniffer hounds.

    How much was taken dollar wise? I will personally give this guy double the amount that was stolen from him. That's the problem with this community, everyone gets on here and suddenly their IQ level drops by 75 points. Everyone wants to see who can slam or insult each other. Grow up people. If KKTV will find out how much this gentleman lost I will gladly replace it. It's called helping others out during times of need.

    @ Andrea- thank you! Exactly what I been thinking. I'm not tryin to say that its okay for people go around robbing others but if you think about it serial killers and pedophiles do a lot more damage than robbers. They are takin lives and ruining others. So please like Andrea said, BRODEN YOUR HORIZONS and QUIT labeling blacks and hispanics to be the only bad ones in this city.
