Two Columbia residents were robbed at gunpoint Saturday evening in the 1700 block of Monroe Street. One victim suffered serious head injuries and is in critical condition at University Hospital.


Police are looking for a white woman, 25 to 30 years old, who is heavyset with brown hair.

The victims reported that they answered the door to a young female who asked to use the phone. Three men wearing masks and armed with handguns then entered the home and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspects were last seen running east bound on Monroe Street.

Police are seeking any information about the woman’s identity. She is reported as being a white female 25 to 30 years old. She is heavyset with brown hair and fair skin.

Two of the three men are heavyset; one is 6 feet tall and the other is about 5 feet 8. The third man is thin and about 5 feet 10.

Anyone with information regarding the crime can call the Columbia Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 874-7423 or 874-7414 or CrimeStoppers at 573-875-8477. You do not have to give your name and might be eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest.
