Newtown Township police are investigating an armed robbery that happened on Monday night.

Officers were dispatched to an armed robbery on Autumn Drive, which sits off Lindenhurst Road, around 8 p.m. Monday.

A resident was robbed at gunpoint by two men, police said.

The victim told investigators that he was approached by two males, both armed with black semi-automatic handguns. The suspects forcibly demanded the man’s wristwatch.

The suspects were described as black males of medium build, standing at approximately 5-foot-10. They were dressed in black clothing, gloves, and ski masks, according to police.

After the robbery, the suspects may have escaped in a dark-colored sedan that was missing a license plate. This vehicle was last spotted on the Newtown Bypass, heading in the direction of I-295.
