A Wauwatosa woman was robbed at gunpoint as she was unloading her car Friday afternoon.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
The woman was pulling into her garage in the 2700 block of Lefeber Avenue when she noticed a man walk by. As she took items out of the car, the man walked up behind her and said, "Just give me your purse."

He demanded she stay in the garage and shut the door, then he ran away.
