A Smiths, Ala., mother and her 18-year-old daughter were robbed at gunpoint Friday outside of Country's Barbecue in downtown Columbus.
At around 9:25 p.m., the 47-year-old mom was waiting in the parking lot for her daughter, who works at the Broadway restaurant. When the teen got into her mother's car, two men came up to the vehicle and one pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at them.
Police reports state the two robbers cursed at the women and demanded their purses.
The robbers got away with $51 in cash and ran over the 14th Street pedestrian bridge into Phenix City. Neither of the women were injured.
