Robbers Leave Victim With Bus Fare


AMDAYTON, Ohio, (UPI) —  Police in Ohio said a robbery victim told officers his attackers left him with enough money to take a bus home.

Dayton Police said the victim told them he was waiting for a bus around 5 a.m. Tuesday when two men approached and held a black handgun up to his forehead, the Dayton Daily News reported Wednesday.

“Give me everything out your pocket,” the man quoted the attackers as saying.

The man said he handed over his cellphone and $40, but the robbers paused before fleeing and one of them asked if he had enough money left to ride the bus. The victim said no, and the robber returned $2, the victim told police.

Police did not offer descriptions of the suspects.
