Teen robbed at gunpoint in Hanover
A teen was robbed at gunpoint in Hanover on Jan. 1, and police are looking for those responsible.
Shortly before 9:30 p.m. on New Year's Day, a 17-year-old was approached by two men in the 300 block of Baltimore Street, according to a news release from Hanover Borough Police. One of the men displayed a handgun and demanded the teen's possessions.
The teen handed over a cellphone and an undetermined amount of money, as well as his shoes, according to police, who added the teen was then punched in the face.
The robbers were last seen running from the area in an unknown direction. The teen was not seriously injured.
Both men are described as white, dressed in black, with black masks over their faces. One is described as being 5-feet-8 and stocky. He displayed a semi-automatic handgun, but police say it could have been a pellet gun. The second is described as being thinner than the first.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police through 911 or 717-637-5575.
