On Feb. 24, at approximately 11 p.m., the Garland Police Department responded to an aggravated robbery that occurred at Indian Lake Park located in the 1200 block of Briar Hollow Lane.
A male and female were sitting in the park area when they were approached by two male subjects who robbed them at gun point. The male victim was robbed of his cell phone and keys to his silver Nissan Pathfinder but the female was able to run away.
