GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are investigating a robbery from a person that occurred in a Taco Bell parking lot around 7:35 p.m.

Officers responded to 1115 Summit Ave. around 7:35 p.m. and met with the victim.

The victim said he had arranged to meet an acquaintance at this location in order to purchase a cell phone. As he was waiting in his vehicle for his acquaintance to arrive, the suspect entered his vehicle through the unlocked rear door, pointed a handgun at him and demanded his cash.

The victim complied and the suspect fled with an undisclosed sum of money in a silver four-door Honda Civic, last seen traveling north on Fairview Street.

No injuries were reported.

The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s or 30s, 6 feet 1 inches tall with a muscular build, wearing a pink and white checkered shirt and blue jean shorts at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.

    Sounds like the guy with the gun knew the victim would have cash. Wonder if the ” acquaintance” ever showed up?
