AMHERST DRIVER LOSES $60 AS BUMP-AND-ROB TARGET

A 60-year-old Amherst man was the victim of a bump-and-rob incident Sunday morning, when he was robbed at gunpoint by one of two young men whose vehicle bumped him from behind on Lexington Terrace, Amherst police reported today.

The bandits' car -- described as an older, medium-blue, four-door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet or Buick -- bumped his vehicle from behind at about 7:15 a.m., a few blocks from his home.

When the victim got out to talk to the other driver, the passenger in the other vehicle pointed a handgun at his head and threatened to kill him. The victim handed over $60 in cash.

The robbers fled north in their car after the incident.
