A Middletown woman said a robber “apologized for the situation,” then took $40 from her at gunpoint, according to the police reports.
The woman said that while she was parked in the 1000 block of Park Lane on Tuesday morning, a man opened her car door and displayed a black revolver.
He demanded everything in the woman’s purse. She told him she had nothing in her purse, but she gave him $40 in two $20 bills from her pocket, the report said.
The robber apologized, the woman told police. She told officers the robber said he was going to place her cellphone on top of her car so she couldn’t call 911. The woman then grabbed her phone and placed it on top of her car.
She told police the man seemed “very calm” during the incident.
Middletown police and a K-9, Chase responded to the scene and were unable to track the subject. Police also walked around the area, but didn’t locate anyone matching the description.
