A married couple was robbed at gunpoint near the intersection of Indian Trail and Tampa Avenue Monday night.

The robbery was reported to police shortly after 8 p.m. on Monday, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

The wife and her husband were strolling home when a black Toyota Prius drove past, turned around and stopped.

Two armed males allegedly got out of the Prius and robbed the husband and wife at gunpoint taking a cooler, two phones, a purse and its contents.

Michael said, the investigation is “ongoing” and as of Tuesday afternoon, no arrests had been made in connection with this stickup.
