Man mugged on Magnolia Avenue

A gun-wielding mugger took $45 in cash and a cell phone from a man in the 4900 block of North Magnolia Avenue on Sunday, police said.

A police report gave the following account:

The man was walking north on Magnolia Avenue at 10:24 p.m. when he felt someone grab his shirt. He turned around to see a man pointing a silver revolver at him.

"Don't shoot me," the man told his attacker, who responded by telling the man to "shut up."

The offender then pushed the man to the ground, where the victim threw out approximately $45 in cash.

The offender picked up the money and the man's cell phone and fled. The cell phone was valued at around $500.
