Couple Robbed at Gunpoint Early Saturday in Downtown Princeton

A couple was robbed at gunpoint early Saturday morning near the intersection of Nassau Street and Witherspoon Street, police said.

One of the suspects struck the male victim behind the right ear with the handle of his handgun and another suspect struck the female victim in the ribs with his firearm, the victims said.

Both reported injuries from the assault and said $700 in cash was taken. The suspects fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Any witnesses to this incident or anyone having any information with regard to the incident is asked to contact the Princeton Borough Detective Bureau at (609) 924-4141.
