A Steak-Out Charbroiled Delivery worker was robbed Tuesday after a man threatened him with a broom handle, according to a Columbus Police Department report.

Police met with the victim at Arbor Point Apartments on 1200 Gazebo Way at about 10:00 p.m. after receiving reports of an armed robbery. The Steak-Out employee told police that he was delivering meat to a customer in the parking lot when a man armed with a shortened broom handle rushed at him yelling "Get up! Get up!"

After the victim told the man he didn't want any trouble and he could take what he wanted, the man allegedly pushed him against his car and told him to "stop making all that noise." The man took $50.00 from the employee's front pants pocket.

Two witnesses gave similar accounts to police.

The man was last seen running southbound on Fort Benning Road. He was described as black man weighing about 165 pounds and about 5-foot-10 inches tall wearing a red shirt, blue jeans, a red skull cap and a black bandana.
