Another individual reported being robbed at gunpoint for a cell phone in Hammond today.  During the robbery, one shot was reportedly fired although no one was injured.   The robbery occurred at approximately 9:15 pm.  The victim reported that a black female in camo pants and a hoodie and a  black male wearing a red hoodie pointed a .32 handgun at him and demanded his cellular telephone and shoes.   The incident occurred in the 1000 block of Kenwood. Hammond has seen a string of cell phone robberies in past weeks.  In particular, there was a string of daytime cell phone robberies in Hessville that were solved with cooperation from Hammond, County and Gary police.

The Gazette thanks the citizen who submitted this tip.  To our readers, please keep the great tips coming.  Together we can get citizens the information they need to stop these robberies.
