Toledoan held up; $1,900, car taken

A Toledo man was robbed at gunpoint of cash and his car early yesterday in central Toledo, police said.

Robin Robinson, 37, told police a stranger walked up to him about 2 a.m. in the 2200 block of Nebraska Avenue as he walked to his car, parked on North University Drive near the University of Toledo's Scott Park campus.

The robber pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and told Mr. Robinson to empty his pockets, then reached in and took his car keys and $1,900. The gunman, dressed all in black, fled in the victim's car.

Police are looking for the car, a gold 2006 Cadillac DTS with an Ohio license plate.
