Three men robbed a man at knifepoint Downtown tonight and took a "considerable amount of diamonds" from him, city police said.
The robbery occurred around 9:30 p.m. on the street near the Gateway Towers parking garage at 320 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Zone 2 Lt. Victor Joseph said.
The three suspects -- described as black men wearing dark hoodies -- took a backpack from the victim that contained the diamonds, he said.
The lieutenant could not confirm the value of the diamonds Thursday night and said it was unclear whether the victim was targeted.
He said the three men were seen in a black or dark blue minivan.
