Two 20-year-old men reported they were robbed by masked and gun-wielding subjects as they were walking in north Centralia overnight, according to police.
Officers called just before 2 a.m. to an area along the railroad tracks beneath the Sixth Street viaduct were told a pair of males in their late teens to early 20s approached them on foot from behind, police Sgt. Kurt Reichert said.
Both subjects were wearing blue bandanas over their faces, covering everything but their eyes, police were told. One had a gun.
He fired it one to four times into the brush, Reichert said.
A wallet, money, a knife and other personal items were stolen, Reichert said.
The victims are from Chehalis and Toledo, according to Reichert. He didn’t know for sure why they walking near the train tracks.
A search with a police dog failed to locate any suspects, he said.
