sounds to me like it may be the same pair that robbed the subway on Gull rd.

Yesterday we were saying how there should always be more than one employee in the building at all times. I guess it does not always work that way.
I also think that the victims should have gone to the hospital to be checked out, not only for their own safety, but if these guys get caught the penalty could be harsher woth evidence of the injury.
I hope the victims can mentally recover from this.

I am just curious, why would you be running the garbage out at the time of night anyways??? the story on the news showed the hours of operation to be from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; maybe they need to re-think how they do things so this wont happen again.. Im sorry that this is a growing problem in this area.. i work for a restaurant that had a guy try to rob us about 2 months ago.. luckily, he did not manage to get away with any cash; however, he did hold a gun to one of our employees heads.. emotional scars are worse than physical ones.. i hope they can recover from this

People need to arm themselves and fight back.

This activity will only continue to get worse as desperate people keep seeing more & more people get away with thoughts they may already have!

Here's a tip for everyone: When walking out to your car at night alone, have your keys out and ready, put your car key in between your index and middle finger and make a fist. If somebody comes up to you punch them hard so that you stab them with the key and when they are caught off guard kick them in the junk and then run to a safe palce to call the cops. And girls: If your about to be raped, dont fight. Wait untill he pulls down his pants, pull down on his balls HARD and then kick him off you and run to safty and call cops. He wont be able to run after you if you pull hard enough.
