2 attempted robberies in Dartmouth
Two attempted robberies took place in Dartmouth Saturday evening.
At 6:30 p.m. two males confronted a man walking near Shore Road in Dartmouth.
The men demanded money from the victim, but the victim produced his wallet and showed them it was empty.
The suspects fled the area. The victim was not injured and nothing was taken.
At about 7:45 p.m. there was another attempted robbery.
A male was walking on Windmill Road in Dartmouth when two males attempted to rob him.
The victim had no money with him and he walked into the middle of Windmill Road and tried to attract attention to himself.
The suspects fled — nothing was taken and the victim was not injured.
Police describe the suspects in both cases as black males, both about five foot ten to six feet tall, one in his twenties and the second in his thirties.
They were wearing grey hooded sweatshirts and pants, both clean-shaven, one possibly had a gold tooth.
Police say because of the time frame, locations and similarities in descriptions of the suspects, it is possible the same parties are responsible for both attempted robberies.
