MPD says the robbery happened near the 3200 block of South Hull Street, a neighborhood that runs parallel to the Garden District. The female victim was robbed of her personal property but did not suffer any injuries.

[UPDATE: The map below has been updated to clarify the location of South Hull Street to show the area near the 3200 block.]

The area where the robbery was reported is less around half a mile from where Samuel James was robbed and killed in August.

Police blanketed the area and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency deployed its helicopter, Air One, which flew low circles over the area in search of the suspects.

There’s no word if the suspects were driving or on foot at the time of the incident. A recent check back with police determined there have been no persons of interest or arrests made.
