Police are still uncertain what might have been inside a syringe two robbers are accused of using during a Monday night robbery, according to a Columbus Police report.

The 37-year-old victim told police she was near the Manchester Expressway and Hamilton Road intersection when two suspects attempted to rob her at about 9 p.m. During the struggle, the suspects stabbed her with a syringe of unknown origin, according to the report.

One suspect — a tall, black man between 35 and 40 years old — was last seen wearing a Chicago Bulls coat. The second, a black woman in the same age range, was described as short and slim. Her clothing was not described.
