(KMOV.com) -- Police are investigating after two women were robbed and carjacked in midtown St. Louis near Chaifetz Arena on Saturday night.
 
Investigators say the women had parked their car near Cardinal Avenue and were walking toward a night club on Locust when two unknown men approached them.
 
According to police, one of the men pushed a victim and took her wallet. The other man reportedly flashed a gun, then took the other victim’s purse and car keys.
 
Police said they later found the victim’s car in north St. Louis, but are still looking for the men responsible.
 
Tara Grant lives in the Locust Business District and said she enjoys the neighborhood. Grant said she feels safe in the area, even at night.
 
"I do walk around here at night, and I walk to the corner store at night,” said Grant.
 
One bar owner told News 4 he would like to see more police patrolling the area, deterring violence as partygoers walk to and from their cars.
