Police are searching for a trio responsible for an armed robbery on the walking trail in Wheeling.

Police say a man was beaten, threatened, and robbed on the Heritage Trail on Sunday night.

A trio -- two woman and a man -- took off with his cash.

It happened around 11, right behind WesBanco Arena.

Police also say one of the three robbers had a gun. The alleged victim was not alone, but his friends were unharmed.

The man also wasn't seriously injured in the attack, but officers are now looking for those responsible.

"There was a report from the victim that a firearm was involved. We sent out K-9 unit there to sweep the area and we aren't sure what direction they went. We do believe we have some suspects based on what the victims told us,” Wheeling Police Public Information Officer Philip Stahl said.

Stahl says they are also reviewing surveillance video in the area and hope to have more information or an arrest soon.

If you have any information on this crime you are urged to call Wheeling police or our anonymous Crimebusters Tipline at 1-800-862-BUST.
