A Macon man’s car was taken at gunpoint just after 7 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Travis Boulevard and Spencer Circle, according to Macon police.
The man told police he had arranged to pick up a young man at a home in the area, but while walking to the house a man robbed him at gunpoint. Money also was demanded from other people who were in the yard outside the house, according to a police news release.
The Macon man tried to return to his car, a 2000 Cadillac Deville, while the other people in the yard fled. But when he tried to enter the car, the man with the gun approached him and pointed the weapon at him, according to the release.
The Macon man ran up the street looking for help. Meanwhile, two other men got into the car and drove off. The car later was recovered down the street behind a vacant house, according to police.
