WOMAN ROBBED AT GUNPOINT IN PARKING LOT: On June 15 at about 10:25 p.m., a 54-year-old female was a victim of an armed robbery as she left the Dunkirk Safeway. The victim advised Det. H.

Seconds after placing her purse in her car she was approached by a black male who had a gun in his right hand. He pointed the weapon at her and instructed her to get the purse from the car or he would shoot her. The victim complied and the suspect ran in a southeast direction between the Safeway fuel station and the WaWa Convenience store. The victim was not injured.
