Spokane police are investigating a robbery that occurred about 10:20 p.m. Saturday underneath the railroad trestle at First Avenue and Stevens Street.

Two teenage males were held up at knifepoint during the incident, according to a news release. The teens were walking through the area when they were approached by four white men in their mid-20s. One of the men pulled a folding knife from his pocket and demanded money from the teenagers, who turned over a cell phone, keys, a wallet and a small amount of money, police said. The victims then fled the scene.

The suspect with the knife was described as about 5-foot-11 and 155 pounds. He was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a necklace with a cross. A second suspect, only described as “smaller,” allegedly hit one of the teens in the back of the head as they ran away.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 911.
