A Columbus man and woman lost their rental car Wednesday at gunpoint, Columbus police said.
The 31-year-old man and 24-year-old woman were in a 2008 Chevrolet Uplander around 4:50 p.m. on Datchet Lane when a man approached them asking for a cigarette, Sgt. Matt Blackstock said. They searched for one, though the man was pointing a gun at them when they looked up.
They were forced out of their vehicle, and the man drove away, Blackstock said. No one was hurt and no shots were fired.
