Pair robbed by gunpoint of wallets and phones in Burbank

Two men were robbed at gunpoint late Wednesday night in the rear parking lot of the Burbank Community YMCA, police said.

A man — described as black, roughly 25 years old with a medium build — brandished a handgun and demanded the victims’ cellphones and wallets at around 10 p.m., said Burbank Police Sgt. Mark Stohl. He was wearing a sweatshirt and baggy pants.

The suspect took roughly $1,000 worth of personal property from the two victims, who were 21 and 22 years old, before fleeing into a light-colored SUV waiting nearby, Stohl added.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call Burbank police at (818) 238-3210.
