JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Some residents of a north Jackson neighborhood contacted Three On Your Side about a terrifying armed robbery.

It happened in this neighborhood on Manila Drive Wednesday night. A couple had arrived home around 9:30 p.m. We are told two armed gunmen were awaiting in ambush. They demanded the man's wallet and woman's purse. When the items were not turned over quick enough, one gunman gave instructions to "shoot her."

As this unfolded, neighbors drove up. The robbers fired three bullets into their SUV. The family including two children escaped injury.

Police are investigating the robbery. Be on the lookout, the robbers were driving a dark, early model Honda accord.
