Columbus Police have yet to identify the gunman who appeared to run away scared following a late Tuesday attempt to rob a man and woman outside of a Peachtree Drive apartment, according to a report.
No one was harmed, police said.
Authorities were called to an apartment complex in the 900 block of Peachtree Drive at 11:33 p.m. in response to a report of an armed robbery at that location. When officers arrived on the scene, they spoke to the victims about the incident.
They said a black man who was approximately 6 feet tall came out of the bushes in the pool courtyard area wearing a white t-shirt, blue jean shorts and a white handkerchief across the face. The man allegedly aimed a black pistol at the two victims and demanded their money around 11:25 p.m.
The victim reportedly told the suspect," I don't have any money. Check my pockets."
At that time, the woman backed away, went inside of her Peachtree Drive apartment and asked another resident to call 9-1-1. The man told police that the offender seemed scared and ran west of the area.
