Three say held up at gunpoint, hit with pepper spray at Columbia and MLK

An attack the victims say was an armed robbery attempt near East Columbia and MLK, sent three people to the hospital Wednesday night.

Three people arrived at the Swedish Cherry Hill emergency room Wednesday just after 9 PM saying they had been attacked at gunpoint and doused with pepper spray and hour earlier near East Columbia and MLK, according to a police radio dispatch.

The 9:16 PM callout to the hospital provided no additional detail on the attempted hold-up and no suspect information was broadcast. We’ll follow up with SPD to see what else we can learn about the incident.
