Two people were allegedly held at gunpoint during separate incidents near the same downtown MetroLink station.
St. Louis police say on Saturday night, July 12, they responded to a call from a MetroLink customer who said a man approached him on the platform and put a gun to his side, taking his money.
Police say the next night a 19-year-old woman was approached by a 16-year-old boy while she was standing at the corner South 14th Street and Spruce, directly across the street from the Metro Bus Station. The female victim said she told the boy to get away. Then the teen pulled a gun and pointed it at her, she said.
