Two women were approached by a man with a rifle early this morning in the city’s Elmwood neighborhood, Buffalo police said.

The women were standing in a driveway on Lexington Avenue, near Richmond Avenue, about 12:45 a.m., when two males walked up to them. One was armed with a rifle and demanded the purse from one of the women, according to police reports.

When the woman refused, both suspects ran west on Lexington. No injuries were reported.
