NIAGARA FALLS – A man who was outside cleaning his car in the 900 block of Ontario Street said he was thrown up against a wall and robbed at gunpoint at 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim said two men, both with handguns, went through his pockets and then dragged him back to his vehicle. He said they took his keys from him and one man opened the vehicle while the other held a gun to his head. He said they told him to get in, but he refused. One man hit him in the head with the butt end of the gun, he told police.

The men fled when they heard a car coming. One man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt covering part of his face and the other was wearing an orange hat, orange shirt and jeans.

The men took an iPhone, a gold chain and a key ring with a car key and house key, police said. The total loss was estimated at $820.
