COLORADO SPRINGS — Police are searching for two men who robbed a woman, pointed a loaded gun at her, and then ran away.
According to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD), officers were called to an area near Galley Road and Murray Boulevard around 1:55 Tuesday afternoon for an aggravated robbery.
When they arrived, officers spoke to a woman who said she was in the area of San Miguel St. and Fosdick Drive when she pulled over because she was feeling sick. The victim told police she got out of her car to vomit and when she went back to her car, she found two men rummaging inside.

When the victim caught up and grabbed her purse, one of the men pulled out a gun, pointed it at her, and fired into the air.
