Police: Woman robbed at gunpoint at 13th Avenue, 14th Street intersection

A Columbus resident says two robbers held her at gunpoint Wednesday night at the corner of 13th Avenue and 14th Street, according to authorities.

The offenders connected to the 10:30 p.m. incident haven't been identified, but the 32-year-old victim described them as 5-foot-9 black men who weigh about 190 pounds, Columbus police said in a report.

Recorders show that woman wasn't harmed, but the gunmen reportedly did point a handgun at the woman and steal $3,000 worth of her property. Among the items stolen was a $250 Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and $50 brown purse, the police said in a report.

On Wednesday, an officer was called to the 1900 block of 16th Avenue concerning the armed robbery, according to records.

The offense remains under investigation.
