Two men commit back-to-back robberies at same Cleveland intersection

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Two unidentified men committed back-to-back armed robberies Sunday at the same intersection in Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood.

The robbers took a 51-year-old man’s money at gunpoint, then took spare change from a 64-year-old man who came upon the hold-up just before 11:45 a.m. on Linwood Avenue near East 71st Street, according to police reports.

The 51-year-old man said the two robbers approached him as he walked into Green’s Deli. One of the robbers pointed a handgun at him while the other robber went through his pockets and took $10, police reports say.

The 64-year-old man came around a corner moments later. The robbers also pointed the gun at him while they stole $1.35 from his pockets, police reports say.

The robbers ran south on East 71st Street before they got into a black SUV and drove away.

Green’s Deli provided security camera video that showed the two men running away, police reports say.

No arrests have been made in the case, police said.
