WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says officers were called to the park just before 8 p.m. Sunday. The victims told investigators they had been sitting in a car near the tennis courts talking for several hours when two males came up from behind the car, showed handguns and demanded cash. The victims handed over some money, and the two suspects took off on a path near the tennis courts toward Independence Blvd.
