A woman was robbed of a basket of handmade Christmas ornaments off of Mackey Street on Monday, police reported.
Officers said that shortly after 11 p.m., a woman was outside of a residence on Ivanhoe Road, where she took the basket out of her vehicle. As she proceeded to walk back to the house, she was approached by a man with a firearm, police said.
Officers said the woman dropped the basket and screamed upon seeing the robber. Police said the scream alerted her boyfriend who then opened the door, allowing her to run inside.
Police said the bandit picked up the basket and ran away.
Officers last night said that there was no one in custody in connection with this incident as yet.
