Langdon Street resident robbed by strangers his roommate let into the apartment

An 18-year-old Langdon Street resident was robbed by two strangers the victim’s roommate let into their apartment Sept. 6 after meeting them on the street, according to a police report.

The release said the victim’s roommate allowed the suspects inside the apartment, located on the 200 block of Langdon Street, to play video games because “they seemed innocent enough” when he met them on the street at approximately 1:30 a.m. The victim’s laptop and wallet were stolen.

The victim’s roommate told police one of the suspects walked down the hall at one point because he said he needed to make a phone call, according to the report.

The report said the victim’s credit card was used at several convenience stores and his wallet was turned into a staff member at a Milwaukee Street convenience store Sept. 7. However, it only contained his ID and insurance cards.

The suspects are both described in the report as black males, one 5 feet 9 inches with no facial hair and short dreadlocks; the other, 6 feet tall with short hair.
