Two men posing as police reportedly robbed a couple at gunpoint early Tuesday while claiming the man was under arrest at a Kettering condo.
Around 1:13 a.m. Kettering police were called around 1:15 a.m. to a report of an armed robbery after a woman fled to a Shell gas station at East Dorothy Lane and County Line Road and used another man’s cellphone to call 911.
She told dispatch she arrived home with her boyfriend when two people approached and said they were police officers. They were wearing badges and put a gun in her face before taking her phone, she said.
“My car was still running,” she said. “They didn’t even let me turn off the car and get out the car and do what I had to do before they just overpowered us.”
The woman was able to run to her car and drive to the gas station to get help.
When officers responded to their condo, the woman’s boyfriend told police the suspects fled in an SUV, according to a police report.
During an interview with detectives, the woman said she and her boyfriend had just returned from a property they’re renovating. She was getting items out of the car when the suspects approached. One reportedly yelled her boyfriend’s name and said he was in trouble.
The suspects forced them through the garage and into their home where they pointed guns in the couple’s faces and wanted keys to the car, according to the report.
The woman was able to get up and run outside to her vehicle before calling for help.
Police found the couple’s phones in the tree line near their home. They also logged a black ski mask and roll of tape as evidence.
The incident remains under investigation.
