A 33-year-old man was sitting in his car Monday night when someone opened the door, stuck a gun to his head and robbed him, said police.

The man with the gun took the victim’s backpack from the vehicle and the second suspect elbowed him in the face the then took the car keys. The pair also took the victim’s cell phone, which he had thrown on the ground.

The suspects, both men in their 20s, fled on foot.
