St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - An armed man robbed three juvenile girls late Monday evening and forced them to undress before fleeing the scene.
According to David Marzullo, a spokesman for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the incident happened at 11:45 p.m. in the 4400 block of Elmbank, west of Fairgrounds Park in north St. Louis.
Police said the three girls-ages 12, 15, and 16-had their cell phones taken in the robbery. The man then fondled two of the girls after telling them to undress. The third girl was then instructed to remove her clothes while the suspect held the trio at gunpoint.
None of the victims apparently knew the armed man, although they told police they had seen him in the neighborhood from time to time.
