UPDATE (4:37 p.m.) — The victim of the armed robbery that took place in Foley Wednesday night has admitted to Foley Police that while visiting friends at Bay Villa apartments, two masked men barged into the residence.
One was armed with a pistol and demanded “property.” The victim later stated they were coming after his weed. He says one of the suspects struck the victim in the back of the head with the pistol before leaving.
They took his lunch box with “unknown items”. Investigators believe it to have contained narcotics.
Police were only called to the scene after neighbors saw the victim sitting outside on the curb bleeding. He was treated at South Baldwin Medical Center for the laceration to his head. No shot was believed to have been fired, but the victim is being uncooperative with the investigation.
He described the two white males wearing camouflage masks. One was tall and skinny with blonde hair and a spider web tattoo on the right arm. He was brandishing what is believed to be a Taurus revolver.
The second suspect was shorter with dark hair and had the name “Bella” on his right forearm.
