Mall at Robinson to reopen after Sunday bomb threat
The Mall at Robinson is expected to reopen today after police evacuated the building Sunday afternoon for a bomb threat.
Fire, police and emergency medical technicians were sent to the mall after the threat was received shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to an Allegheny County 911 supervisor.
The threat was made via a note placed in the Sears store, the supervisor said.
Bomb technicians and other officers from the Pittsburgh and Allegheny County police departments were dispatched to help search the building, officials said.
Fire equipment was parked in front of the entrances to prevent people from entering the building and employees were kept outside for several hours while the building was checked.
Customers and others who left items behind in the rush to clear the mall must return Monday after it reopens to reclaim their property.
