Burglars Invade Central West End Apartment, Hold Residents at Gunpoint

Categories: Violent Crime
Three people in the Central West End are recovering from a scare after two armed men burst into their apartment early this morning.

According to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, a 22-year-old man was in his living room in the 4000 block of Westminster (above) when two black males with bandannas around their faces entered through the unsecured back door of the apartment around 12:50 a.m. today.

One of the suspects held the three people inside the apartment at gunpoint as the second suspect rummaged through the residence, grabbing two laptop computers and two cell phones. The suspects, believed to be in their early 20s, then left out the back door. Police describe all three victims -- two men and a woman -- as being in their early 20s and of Asian ethnicity.

At the risk of stereotyping, we suspect that the victims could be students at nearby Saint Louis University or Washington University. Police, however, could not provide Daily RFT with the occupation of the victims.

How dare you speculate they were students! These kids were are probably hard working drug dealers!

What a bunch hypersensitivity.

I'd speculate such out of control emotional responses might be to one of, or a combination of several of the following:

1) Estrogen Poisoning. 2) PMS3) A case of the faggots.

At least Chad didn't speculate on the presence of ferrets...

Stereotyping would have been saying that the robbers were seen on the video of the bar fight in ESL. This was more of an observation.

You blatantly stereotyped and it added nothing to the reporting. #reallychad

At the risk of stereotyping, we suspect that Chad is a white dude who was too stupid to go to WashU...or even SLU. However the police would not go into specifics on the matter.

Three people (two age 22, one 23) living two blocks from SLU. It's so terrible to speculate that they could be students!? #dontunderstandyouranger

You're probably right on at least one of the schools. C'mon people. What part of "at the risk of stereotyping" and "could be students" do you find so effing offensive??

It's also reasonable to assume that they all major in some form of mathematics.

Oh really? I bet that Chad was right on the money with his speculation that the Asian kids went to either SLU or Wash U. What the fuck is wrong with that?
