A bible was stolen at gunpoint Sunday night in a street robbery in Arlington, the police said.

Arlington police said the victim was approached on a sidewalk about 11:20 p.m. in the 6000 block of Wilson Boulevard, just west of Bluemont Park.

Two robbers, carrying guns and wearing ski masks, took the victim’s cell phone along with the bible, police said.

They fled into a wooded area, and escaped despite a search which included a dog and a helicopter, police said.
