From staff reportsApril 10, 2013 

— An armed gunman held up a man and woman outside the Lynnhaven Apartments on Lynn Road and ordered the man to leave his pants then run from the scene Tuesday night, police said.

The man and woman were driving into the apartments to purchase music recordings from someone there, they told police, when the man came up to their car with a gun at about 8:45 p.m.

After taking their valuables, he ordered the male victim to take off his pants, police said.

The man ran to a nearby church to get help, and the woman drove off to her home. The woman later returned to the scene to speak with officers there, police said.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation was continuing, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.
