NIAGARA FALLS

Man robbed at gunpoint

A Falls man told police two men robbed him at gunpoint about 1 a.m. Wednesday on the 2100 block of Main Street.

The 26-year-old victim said he was out cleaning the rims on his vehicle when two men grabbed him and threw him against a wall. Both men had handguns. The men went through the victim's pockets, taking an iPhone and a gold necklace. 

One of the men then took the victim's car keys and began searching through the vehicle while the second man held a gun to the victim's head.

When the two men ordered him to get in his car, the victim said he refused and was struck with a gun at the back of the head. A car coming down the road scared off the men and they fled the area, taking the victim's car key with them.

Police searched the area but could not locate the men, described as two black men, one wearing a black hoodie with part of it covering his face and the other wearing an orange hat and shirt.
