WESTFIELD (Feb. 20, 2014) – Police released a composite sketch of one of the men accused of robbing a driver whose car broke down at a Hamilton County apartment complex.

On Jan. 30 around 7:20 p.m., a 38-year-old man was driving in the 800 block of South Union Street when his car suffered a mechanical problem. After pulling into the Hamilton Square Apartments to take a closer look, two men approached him; one had a black, semi-automatic handgun.

The men demanded valuables, and the driver complied. Both men ran off. The driver was not hurt.

Westfield police released a sketch of the gunman. He’s described as a black male between the ages of 17 and 19. He’s about 5’10” with a skinny build.

The second suspect was a lighter-skinned black male of about the same age. He was shorter—about 5’4”—and wore a dark coat, black hat and black pants.

Anyone with information should call the Westfield Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at (317) 804-3200 or Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-Tips (8477).
