Columbus crime: Woman robbed at gas station

A fill-up at the tank turned into an armed robbery early Sunday for a Columbus woman, police said.

The 20-year-old Columbus woman had just finished filling her tank at Circle K, 3010 Buena Vista Road, when she was approached by a man who told her he had a gun and didn't want to shoot her. She got scared, and Columbus police report the robber took her purse and $20 cash.

The suspect is described as a 45- to 50-year-old black man, standing 6-foot-5, weighing 180 pounds and wearing a green jacket, blue jeans and a white T-shirt.
