LINCOLN, RI (WLNE) - Lincoln Police are on the hunt to identify two individuals who completed a strong armed robbery in the Twin River Casino parking lot early this Monday morning.

Around 3:00 AM, a married couple returned to their car parked in the northern lot after a night in the casino. 

According to police, the robbery suspect exited from the passenger side of a nearby silver Jeep Cherokee and forcibly ripped open the passenger side of the victim's vehicle.

The suspect pulled both the victim and her pocketbook from the vehicle, with the victim sustaining scrapes and bruising as a result.

Police say the male suspect fled the scene, and the Jeep Cherokee driven by a female accomplice only narrowly avoided striking the victim as she sped off. The male suspect reentered the vehicle by the lot exit and both suspects fled the area.

The male suspect is described as a white male around 5'6" to 5'9" with a medium build. The female suspect is described as a white female with light colored hair.

Anyone with information which might lead to the identity of the suspects, or may have witnessed the robbery, is urged to call  the Lincoln Police Department at (401) 333-1111.
