Scottsdale police are searching for a man suspected of robbing three people at gunpoint in Scottsdale on Sunday evening. According to Scottsdale Police Officer David Pubins, two men and a woman were in the Borgata parking lot at 6160 N. Scottsdale Road when a man driving a black SUV pulled up to the victims, exited his vehicle, pointed a gun at them and demanded their wallets and purses. The victims complied with the robber’s demands, and the robber returned to his vehicle and drove away without harming them. Officer Pubins said “If you are ever found in a position such as this, it is best to comply as things can be replaced. An individual’s safety is much more important than their property.” Scottsdale police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to contact them.
