A female driver was robbed in Columbus Monday afternoon at the intersection of 12th Avenue and 24th Street, according to authorities.
Columbus Police said no injuries were reported in the 5:15 p.m. incident.
At 6:01 p.m. Monday, an officer was called to the corner of 12th Avenue and 21st Street to meet with the 51-year-old Phenix City woman who was robbed nearby.
The victim told police that she was driving her 1998 Toyota Avalon when she came to a stoplight at the intersection of 24th Street and 12th Avenue.
That’s when an unknown black man wearing a red hoodie and black pants reportedly approached her car, reached into the vehicle and stole her $5 wallet sitting on the front passenger seat. The wallet contained $190 in cash in addition to various earrings and bank cars, she told the responding officer.
Authorities searched the area for the suspect, who she described as being 5 feet 11 inches tall and 170 pounds with a slender face. He has yet to be located or identified, officials said in the report.
