SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Scottsdale Apple store Friday night.

The two suspects made their escape on a motorcycle and are still at large, police said.

The robbery happened just before 8 p.m. at the Scottsdale Quarter store, near Scottsdale Road and Greenway Parkway.

Police say a man was approached by a loss prevention staffer for shoplifting.

That's when police say the man pulled out a handgun. 

The man, accompanied by a woman, took off from the scene on a motorcycle, according to police.

Police tracked the two by helicopter, and eventually found the motorcycle, abandoned, at a Glendale Food City near 59th Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

Both Phoenix and Glendale police officers searched the area but the pair was not found.

Food City = Illegals


Motorcycle = Kawasaki. They must be illegals, you think, because the motorcycle was abandoned at Food City. Thanks, Sherlock. And Food City is known to sell ice cream, so they must be children. And the motorcycles is lying on its left side, so they must have gotten off the other side. This is where the crime fighters meet to solve mysteries, isn't it?


How come there’s no Apple store surveillance pictures or video?


Left motorcycle left trace to person then.[wink]


Probably stolen by these west valley trash.


Now I know why you usually post nothing but little pictures. Make sense, will ya'?

Try again, Sergei. Couldn't understand your left-handed typing.


Robs - Quit showing off that fancy GED education. We're not all as fortunate as you.
