The man said he had seen this same couple at a drug store on Primrose Street where he had made a purchase, and belie­ved the couple may have followed him. The couple followed the man to his apartme­nt and then forced their way in as he en­tered it. The woman had a rock in her ha­nd and the male youth had a knife and th­ey demanded the man’s property.
