After robbery in Miami's Little Haiti, men shopped at Target, detectives say


MIAMI – Miami police officers said two men terrorized two women. The women said the men took their purses at daytime in a residential neighborhood. Detectives said they didn't cover their faces when they showed up to a store to go shopping at their victims' expense. 

Detectives were searching for them Thursday as they investigated the robbery in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood.

The women told police officers the armed men robbed them as they were walking to their car about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at 5528 NW Third Ave. After the women handed over their purses, they said, the robbers ran into a silver SUV where another man was waiting. 

Surveillance video showed two of the three men walking into a Target in Miami to shop with the stolen credit cards, Miami police Officer Kenia Fallat said.

Detectives were asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
