PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police have been searching for two armed men who robbed a woman, her teen daughter and the girl’s two friends downtown.

Police say the robbery took place about 6:30 p.m. Sunday at Gateway Plaza.

That’s when two men who appeared to be black or Middle Eastern approached the group and demanded their cellphones, purses and cash before running away. Police say both men were wearing jeans and black shirts.

Police say many people were still milling about downtown following Sunday’s Pittsburgh Steelers game when the robbery occurred.
