I would like to comment about the sketches the police provided to the public. The sketches represent the hair and apparent age of the kids who robbed me, Billy and our friend. However, the two boys were about the same height- there was definitely NOT a ten inch difference between the two boys. This leads me to believe that this may not be the same duo. I distinctly remember that both of the boys were small. The kid that I dealt with directly had twists, but I did not get the sense that he was 5'10''.
A detective left me a message to contact him about a week after Billy was contacted. We called back but our call has not been returned.
