Police siren lights light bar squad car

A Madison man was robbed at gunpoint last week while sitting in his car on the North Side.

The armed robbery happened at about 7 p.m. on Tuesday, but wasn't reported to police until Monday morning, police said.

"The 48-year-old victim said he was inside his car, parked in a lot in the 1500 block of Troy Drive, when a gunman approached his window," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

The robber took cash from the victim and fled on foot.

No description of the robber was given.
