A woman taking out the garbage from a Fillmore Avenue store Monday night was punched in the face and robbed, according to a Buffalo police report.
The victim, who works at the Dollar Tree on Fillmore between Dewey and Leroy avenues, told police the robber got out of a vehicle that was parked near the trash area, made threats and then took cash out of her pocket after punching her, according to the report.
She reported the crime at about 9:45 p.m. There were at least three people inside the vehicle, which drove away east on Leroy. The vehicle was described as a gray, four-door Saturn with yellow license plates.
