Five men armed with handguns stole a purse from a couple during a robbery early Friday in the parking lot of a Circle K convenience store just east of downtown Colorado Springs, police said.
The men, who were wearing dark clothes, approached a woman and her husband at the business at Hancock and East Pikes Peak avenues just after 4 a.m., police said.
They demanded money, grabbed the woman's purse, and ran toward nearby Memorial Park, police said.
Officers searched the area but did not find the men, police said.
The investigation is ongoing.
