Police are looking for two women who tried to rob a man in Planeview on Wednesday night.
One of the women, Lt. Doug Nolte said, brandished a distinctive weapon — a pink stun gun.
The women, both of whom are about 30, were with a friend of the victim when they came to his house in the 2500 block of South Roosevelt, near Pawnee and Hillside, at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nolte said.
The four of them were hanging out talking when the friend, whom the victim knows only as “Chiapas,” got into an argument with one of the women, Nolte said.1`

As they were arguing, the other woman pulled out a knife and held it to the 27-year-old resident’s side, demanding money. The woman involved in the argument left and returned with a pink stun gun, also demanding money and valuables from the victim.
He was able to get away and call 911 without being hurt and without having anything taken, Nolte said. The other three left his house.
Police do not consider “Chiapas” a suspect in the case because the victim said it didn’t appear that he knew the women were going to try to rob him.
