A Commerce man reported being robbed while he was inside his vehicle in the parking lot at Walgreens on North Broad St.
On Wednesday, April 28, the 24-year-old complainant stated he was sitting inside his Ford Mustang in the parking lot when a man walked up to his driver’s side door and began giving him compliments on the car, saying it was nice and was probably fast.
The complainant said the man then said, “give me the car or I’m going to shoot you in the face” while lifting up his shirt.
The complainant said he hesitated and the man looked into the Mustang and notice it was a manual and apparently decided against taking the car, but then talked about money. The complainant said he handed over $10 dollars in cash and four loose cigarettes.
The complainant said the man then asked for a ride, but the complainant said he left the area and called 911 when he got home.
