A Columbus woman was robbed at gunpoint near her home a little before 10 p.m. Thursday.
The woman told police that she drove into the parking lot at Pembrook Court and noticed a man sitting on an air conditioning unit near a building east of her's.
The man then walked up to her with a shirt over his face, pointed a small, black handgun at her head and said "give it up."
He then grabbed her purse and ran behind the building.
Never miss a local story.
She drove to the corner of Pembrook Court and Pembrook Drive and called police who then searched for the man.
She described the thief as a black man in his 20s wearing shorts and a black hat.
Columbus police are investigating.
