Armed Suspect Steals Game Console from Reynoldsburg Mother
COLUMBUS (Steve Levine/Ken Hines) -- Police are searching for a man suspected of robbing a Reynoldsburg mother while her baby sat in a nearby car.
Kimberly says she was robbed in the parking lot of a West Columbus apartment complex by a man who called himself Scott.
The suspect had expressed interest in purchasing a Sony PS3 gaming console Kim had advertised on Craigslist.
Kimberly said the thief displayed a gun after she refused to let him take the console to test it before he handed over his cash.
“He said, 'You are going to give it me,'” said Kimberly, who let him run off with the game console. “I am not about to die over a PS3.”
The robbery occurred as Kimberly's baby and teenage cousin waited for her in a car that was parked in the lot.
The suspect is described as a white male with several tattoos, including a Cancer astrological sign on his left shoulder blade.
Columbus police are investigating the robbery.
