COLUMBIA — Police reported an armed robbery in a fast food parking lot and a home invasion, both in north Columbia, in the past two days.
Around 9:30 Sunday night, two men stole money, a wallet and a laptop computer from a 25-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman in the parking lot between Taco Bell and Home Depot on Clark Lane, according to Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer of the Columbia Police Department.
Stroer said the woman, who was driving the car, noticed two women staring at her from inside a red Dodge or Chrysler four-door sedan. The woman pulled up to the car, and then two men got into the back seat of her car and stole the items. The victims were uninjured, Stroer said.
In a separate home invasion incident around 1:30 Monday morning, two men with guns entered a house in the 1100 block of Madison Street and stole money, according to Stroer.
The men then hit two victims, a 27-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, on their heads with the guns. The man and woman were uninjured, Stroer said.
Stroer said the robbers left the house on foot, heading south. Police used dogs to track the men but were unsuccessful.
