Tuscaloosa Police say they need help finding those responsible for two separate robberies over the weekend.

The first robbery was Oct. 30 in the 3200 block of Cordell Wynn Circle in Tuscaloosa. Police are searing for the victim’s blue 2002 Ford Mustang with an Alabama license plate number of ANL056, which the suspect stole.

The victim said she was approached by a black man wearing a ski mask and carrying a black and silver handgun as she was getting out of her vehicle. The victim said the suspect told her to get out of the car, then pulled her out by her hair.

The victim said the suspect drug her to the porch and threatened to hurt her if she didn’t open the door, but she said she dropped her keys. She said the suspect demanded money, and when she told him she had some in the car, he took her back to it, where he retrieved the keys from the ground and drove off.

She said that as he was leaving, he fired several shots in her direction, and police said they recovered several shell casings at the scene.


The second robbery was Oct. 31 around 9:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Links Boulevard in Tuscaloosa.

The victim said he was leaning inside his vehicle when he was approached by three black men wielding knives and wearing gray hoodies and Halloween masks.


The victim said he was pushed against the car and held by two suspects, while the other searched his pockets. After they found nothing, the victim said they fled, running toward the southwest corner of the apartment complex.
