Grandmother robbed at gunpoint while waiting for grandkids outside local school

A 72-year-old grandmother reported that she was robbed at gunpoint while she was in her car waiting to pick up her grandchildren at about 2:05 pm Thursday, Jan. 18, outside of Saint John’s Lutheran School at Montrose and Lavergne avenues.

The woman reported that another vehicle, described as a dirty silver hatchback, pulled up near her 2010 Toyota Camry, and a man exited the vehicle and ordered her to “get out,” while pointing a small black gun at her, according to police.

Two men were reported to have driven away with the woman’s car, while a third man drove off in the hatchback. Also reported stolen was the woman’s purse, police said.

The man who displayed the gun was described as a young black male. Additional descriptions of the assailants were not available.
