Two men robbed a Green Springs woman at gunpoint Wednesday night in Sandusky, making off with the woman’s purse and bank cards.

Sandusky police said they’re still investigating the incident, and they haven’t identified any suspects.

The 35-year-old woman told officers she was walking to her vehicle in the 300 block of E. Adams St. at about 9:30 p.m., when two men approached her at gunpoint, a police report said.

One of the men pointed a small, black handgun at her and demanded her purse, which she promptly handed over. The second man also pointed a handgun at her, the report said.

The suspects, both wearing dark clothing, fled south on Franklin Street.  

A slew of police cruisers descended on the area within minutes, setting up a perimeter.

A Perkins police officer also showed up with a police dog, but it was unable to track the men.

The woman told police her purse contained $20, four credit cards, four pairs of scissors and various other items, such as her driver’s license and a health insurance card.
