A man and woman were arrested for investigation of robbery Thursday night after police found two men fighting outside an apartment building in a drug deal gone bad at Summit and E Olive.
According to the police report on the incident, officers responded to a call just after 8p from a man who said he was being robbed. They arrived to find two men fighting.
The caller told police he is from out of town and met one of the suspects downtown earlier that day. The victim said he had come up to Capitol Hill with the suspect to rent a place to sleep for the night. He said the man and the woman then pulled knives on him and demanded more money. The victim told police he handed over his cash, left the building and called 911 but as he was on the phone, the male suspect came outside and attacked him.
After further questioning, police say both men admitted that they had met for a drug deal.
