Lufkin Police Investigate Robbery

Lufkin authorities are investigating an alleged armed robbery.

A man was allegedly robbed at gunpoint inside his pickup truck.

A witness says a man jumped out of the passenger seat of a truck near the corner of Menefee and Parker street.

The witness says the victim told her that the alleged robber made off with all of the victim's cash and the keys to his truck leaving him stranded.

Folks living nearby are concerned about the violence in their neighborhood.

"All I want is the cops to pay a little bit more attention to our neighborhood. Cause its getting scary out there especially when there's women and children... it's dangerous." says Irma Sarimanto.

Police say that apparently the victim was giving the alleged robber a ride from an area store when the supposed robbery took place.
