A couple was reportedly robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning while walking in the area of West College Avenue and Greenwood Place, according to Decatur Police.

The victims reported they were walking on West College Avenue at about 1:30 a.m. when an unknown man walked off Greenwood Place toward them. As the man passed, he abruptly turned around and asked, "What do you got?" while pointing a handgun.

One of the victims handed over his wallet and the suspect then searched the victim and demanded a cell phone he felt in the victim's pocket. The suspect then asked what was in the second victim's purse and she gave her purse to him. 

According to the victims, the suspect ran back to Greenwood Place and got in a waiting vehicle that fled south on Greenwood Place. The victims were not injured.

A wallet, purse and two cell phones were taken in the robbery.

The suspect was described as a black man in his late teens to early 20s with close-cut hair, about 6'2, thin to medium build, wearing a black zip-up hoodie and dark pants, armed with a small silver semi-automatic handgun.

The suspect vehicle was described as a gold, older-model boxy SUV, possibly a Jeep Cherokee.
