A man was robbed at gunpoint in the alley behind his Wauwatosa home last week.
According to a Wauwatosa police report:
The man rode the bus to 60th Street and North Avenue. When he exited, he saw three men standing around talking but didn't pay much attention to them.
As he walked home, he heard footsteps behind him and saw the men from the bus stop out of the corner of his eye, so he picked up the pace. He had reached the concrete slab behind his home in the 2300 block of North 63rd Street when one of the men yelled to him to stop. He turned around and saw one of the men held a semiautomatic handgun pointed at the ground.
A second man said: "Give us all your money. Go slow and don't make any sudden movements."
The victim handed over cash and when the robbers questioned whether he was withholding any money, he showed them that his wallet was empty. The robbers took off running.
