Armed teens take car

An armed robbery of a car happened in Columbus around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Cary Goetting was sitting in his 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the parking lot of the Citgo service station at the intersection of 33rd Street and Hamilton Road when he was approached by three teens. A handgun was pointed at Goetting and he was told to get out of his vehicle. The teens then drove off. They were spotted by Columbus police going west on 24th Street. Police found the abandoned car soon after on 14th Avenue. The left rear of the car had been damaged as though it has sideswiped an object.

Columbus police are investigating.
