Police say two women were robbed at gunpoint around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. This happened near the intersection of 21st and Lee streets. The two suspects in this case were not wearing shirts and were last seen in a beige car. The victims were not hurt.

The third one happened around 2 a.m. in the 2300 block of Semmes Avenue. Police say the victim was held up at gunpoint. He then ran to a nearby Fas Mart for help. No one was hurt during the robbery.
