EAST HILLS (KDKA) — The SWAT Team responded to an armed robbery in East Hills.
Two men doing maintenance at the Maple Ridge Apartments were robbed by two young men. One of the robbers was armed. They took car keys and several hundred dollars.
The victims saw the suspects run into apartments on East Hill Drive.
“The security people came and secured the building,” Pittsburgh Police Commander Kathy Degler said. “We knew no one had gotten out of the building and the SWAT officers were called to the scene and they did a clearing of every apartment and they discovered the two actors in one of the apartments.”
The suspects were positively identified by the victims.
The search took several hours. The suspects were inside one of the last apartments searched. Authorities also found some of the stolen items.
