RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – Three men apparently tried to rob the wrong man, but police say that didn’t deter them from trying again.
Police tell 2 NEWS three men with guns tried to rob a man inside the The Towne Laundry on Linden Ave. in Riverside around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. But the intended victim pulled out his own weapon, which he is licensed to carry. The man fired at the suspects, scaring them away.
While police were trying to track the suspects, a robbery was reported at the Sunoco on Wayne Ave. in Dayton. The suspects in that case were also three men wearing hoodies, masks and gloves.
Just before 12:30 a.m., the same men robbed the Circle K on Watervliet Ave.
Police are looking for a sliver 2008 Honda Odyssey minivan they believe the suspects were in when they hit the laundromat. They were on foot for the second and third robberies.
Investigators are reviewing surveillance video from each crime scene.
