Four people were robbed at gunpoint in three separate instances since Saturday, according to the West Orange Police Department.
A man and a woman in their mid-20s were walking on Valley Road at around 11:50 a.m. on Tuesday when two men carrying handguns walked up behind them.
The man and woman were robbed of about $1,700 in cash and property, including $550 in cash, an Apple iPhone worth $600, and a purse and wallet valued at $400.
The two men with handguns were reportedly driving a black-colored Ford Crown Victoria. Both men were described as African American; one about 5-feet 9-inches tall, and 270 pounds; the other 6-feet tall and 230 pounds.
Another armed robbery was reported on Monday which police say possibly involved a shotgun.
A 60-year-old man parked his car in the front of his house on John Street. As he exited his car, a sliver- or gray-colored BMW pulled up next to him and two African American men in their 20s got out. One of the men brandished a handgun and the other held a larger firearm, probably a shotgun, according to police.
One of the men struck the 60-year-old man in the head with the end of his gun, and then robbed him of his wallet, containing $800 in cash and various credit cards. The two men then sped away on Whittlesey Avenue.
The other armed robbery occurred on Saturday evening but was not reported until Tuesday.
A 44-year-old man said he was walking on Tremont Avenue near Freeman Place after stepping off a public bus. He was approached from behind by a light-skinned African-American man holding a handgun and wearing a mask covering his mouth.
The man robbed the 44-year-old of $20 in cash, and then fled into the City of Orange.
