MUNSTER | More teens reported being robbed at gunpoint over the weekend after attending the St. Thomas More Fun Days festival, police said.
According to Lt. Ed Strbjak, a Lansing teen attended the festival at the church at 8435 Calumet Ave. and went to a friend's house nearby afterward. At 3 a.m., as he was walking home, he told police he was approached near the intersection of Broadmoor and Tapper Avenues by three or four men wearing dark clothing.
One of the men pointed a handgun at the teen and demanded his diamond earrings and cellular phone, Strbjak said.
At 11 p.m. Sunday, two Munster teens were walking home from the festival when the were approached by a beige or gold Cadillac that pulled up beside them at the corner of Tapper and Broadmoor Avenues.
The teens told police several men were inside the vehicle. One of the men in the Cadillac pointed a handgun at the teens and demanded their cellphones and cash before driving away.
The incidents follow a similar report from Thursday, when two 17-year-old Hammond boys told police they were walking home from the festival around 11:30 p.m. when they were approached by two men near Broadmoor and Calumet avenues.
The teens told police one of the suspects displayed a weapon and robbed them of their cellphones and $1,000 cash.
All of the incidents remain under investigation, Strbjak said.
