A Wauwatosa man was robbed while sitting in his car outside Pick 'n Save, 1717 N. Mayfair Road, about 12:45 p.m. April 5 by a person who flashed a handgun tucked in the waistband of his pants, according to a Wauwatosa police report.
Also from the report:
A man was arranging $900 in cash he had just withdrawn from the bank inside the grocery store when a dark green Dodge Intrepid pulled up behind his car, blocking his exit.
The victim's car was parked in the southeast corner of the parking lot when a man, likely between the ages of 28 and 35, knocked on the driver's side window. The thief demanded the man's money while putting his hand on the butt of a gun located in the waistband of his pants.
The victim handed over the $900 and remained in the vehicle.
The robber is described as a Latino man of medium weight, unshaven, between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9, and wearing blue carpenter-style jeans, a dark-colored shirt and a black, waist-length "puffy" coat.
