One woman, who did not want to be identified, said she was robbed while behind the wheel of her dad’s parked car.
“A strange man came to my car out of no where and was like ‘Ma’am, give me whatever is in your bag and your phone,'” the woman said. “My phone was on my lap and I said oh my God he said, Ma’am, if you move I am going to shoot this whole car.'”
Sloan reports the woman gave the suspect $1,000 and her iPhone 6 Plus.
Chanel Lorenzo said she was waiting alone for the bus on 16th Avenue around 7 a.m. Monday when two men got out of a small car, walked up to her and pointed two silver semiautomatic guns at her head.
