Soon after 11am this morning, there were two incidents of armed robbery in Bexley that we believe to be related. The first occurred on Euclaire Avenue on the first block south of Main, and the second occurred in the Capital University parking lot at the southeast corner of Pleasant Ridge and Mound. Both involved a suspect showing a gun and asking for the victim's wallet. In the incident at Capital University, a suspect also punched one of the victims.
