ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Police are investigating after two people were reportedly robbed at gunpoint at a Metro Call-A-Ride bus stop in north St. Louis Thursday morning.

According to police, the 59-year-old male bus driver and a 49-year-old male passenger were robbed when a suspect got on the bus in the 1700 block of Euclid Ave. near Cote Brilliante Ave.

 

The suspect allegedly pointed a gun at the bus driver, demanding his wallet. The driver complied. The suspect then demanded money from the passenger, who said he didn’t have any to give.  The suspect ordered the passenger to empty his pockets; the passenger complied, proving he really didn’t have anything to give.

 

The suspect quickly got off the bus and got into the passenger side of a grey vehicle and left the scene.

 

The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 17 and 25 years old, 5'7" to 5'8" tall, weighing 140-150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black shirt, dark jeans and a black baseball cap.

 

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
