You can see at 3:15pm, the victim was on the 1700 block of Worrel Street, parked with his hazard lights on, when he was ambushed.

Police say one of the robbers placed a handgun to the victim’s side, and ordered him not to move or look at them. Then he took the victim’s gold chain, keys, cell phone and $600 from his wallet.
