A Columbus woman was robbed at gunpoint Friday in the parking lot of Mr. Check Cashers, located at 3759 Victory Drive.
After walking out of the Columbus business, the woman entered her car, which was parked in front of the building. She was then approached by a man dressed in a black and orange hoodie. He pointed a gun at her and demanded money as another man who also had a gun, approached the car and demanded her purse.
The woman described both men as having scarves wrapped around their faces so she was unable to describe them. She said they stole $830 as well as several items including her driver’s license, Social Security card, wallet, and other personal items.
She told the police the two men fled toward Fort Benning Road and Ticknor Drive.
