According to police, they were called around 2:20 a.m. on Sunday, October 16 to a reported robbery in a parking lot in the 100 block of South 3rd Street.

The victim told officers he was walking with a man when the man pulled a handgun and demanded money. The victim said he gave the suspect $15, but the suspect demanded more money and told the victim to get into the passenger seat of his car.
