WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A pair of Good Samaritans picking up a hitchhiker end up victims of an armed robbery early Friday morning.

The victims were driving on Clay Street and decided to stop and pick up a male who needed a ride. When the couple stopped, two males got into the backseat.

One of the men asked if he could borrow a phone. The female victim handed him a phone and the suspect got out the car and took off.

The other male pointed a gun at the female and demanded money. The male victim gave the suspect money and he then ran away towards Princess Place Drive.

One suspect is described as 29 years old with medium length dreads. The other suspect is described as skinny with shoulder length dreads.
