MAN SAYS HE WAS ROBBED AND PISTOL WHIPPED

A Bergholz man told police he was robbed and pistol-whipped in the city Tuesday night.

He said that as he dropped off a man in the 1400 block of Ashland Avenue, a second man pointed a semi-automatic gun at him while the first man ripped a gold chain from his neck.

Police reported that the Bergholz man was struck in the head twice and that the suspects took $650 from a glove box before fleeing.
