NIAGARA FALLS – A 57-year-old woman told police that a man pointed a gun at her and tried to rob her at 5:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of 7th Street.

The woman told police that the unknown man approached her from behind, pointed a silver handgun at her, and demanded that she hand over all her money and “drop everything.” She told police that at first she thought the man was “just messing” with her, but when she realized he was serious she just ran.

The victim ran to a friend’s house and called police. She was not injured and nothing was lost or stolen, according to police. The victim said the suspect ran off through some yards.
