Platteville police are investigating a report of an armed robbery in a downtown apartment Thursday.

Police said the robbery was reported Thursday afternoon, after it occurred  in a Main Street apartment around midnight.

The victims reported that three masked men, one armed with a handgun, entered the apartment and told the occupants to lay on the floor. At least one of the robbers took “various belongings,” police said.

The robbery report came six weeks after a report of an armed robbery at a Fox Ridge Road residence Feb. 12, in which the victims reported being robbed by three masked men, one with a handgun and one with a rifle. Wallets and other items were taken in that robbery. Police said that residence was “possibly targeted based on past relationships.”

Anyone with information on either robbery is asked to call police, 348-2313.
