3 robbed in separate incidents

Two men and a woman were robbed at gunpoint Tuesday during three incidents in Toledo, police said.

The first occurred when Gary Cox, 21, arrived at his home in the 400 block of Langdon Street about 6 p.m. Tuesday.

A man pushed open the front door, pointed a handgun at him, and demanded money. Three other men stood on the porch, a report said. The robber took $70 and fled toward South Avenue, police said.

Cornelius Henry, 28, and Ashley Shipes, whose age was unavailable, were forced at gunpoint into a house on Hanover Street about 8 p.m. Tuesday by a man wearing a ski mask, police said. The robber put a gun to Ms. Shipes' head and ordered Mr. Henry to get him money. He fled in a silver car, police said.

Tanika Davis, 30, was putting flyers on vehicles in the 600 block of Junction Avenue about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man approached from behind, pressed a handgun against her face, and stole her purse, police said. He then fled down Junction, a report said.
