NIAGARA FALLS – A 73 year-old man said two men came up from behind as he was walking along Pine Avenue at 8:30 p.m. Saturday and pointed a gun at him and demanded he hand over the cash he had just withdrawn from the ATM machine.

He told police that he was in fear for his life, so he did as he was told, handing over $680. The victim said he had just withdrawn the money and had planned to go the casino. He said the money was also his rent money and he was staying in the mission for the time being.
