A Columbus woman was robbed in the driveway of her Chatham Woods Drive home Wednesday night, according to police.
The 33-year-old woman told police that she came home at around 8 p.m., got out of her car and checked her mail. As she was walking to her garage, a man approached her, pointed a pistol at her and demanded that she give him everything she had.
