WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

A Vermilion man says someone tried to rob him at gunpoint while at a traffic light in Westlake.

This happened just after 10:00 p.m. on June 10 at the intersection of Columbia Road and Hilliard Boulevard.

The victim tells police he was stopped at the light, when a man armed with a small black semi-automatic handgun reached in through the open passenger window and grabbed at the radar detector.

The driver then hit the gas and the suspect ran off eastbound on Hilliard Boulevard.

If you have any information, please contact Westlake Police.
