Woman robbed after sobering stop in northeast Fort Wayne

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 6:50 am

Stopping to sober up led to a woman being held up at gunpoint early Saturday morning.

Fort Wayne Police report that a woman told them she was driving home from a bar about 1:45 a.m. Saturday when she decided she should pull over and sober up before continuing. She did so, parking in a parking lot on the city's northeast side, and was approached by two men. One of them showed a handgun and told her to hand over everything she had. At that point, “everything she had” amounted to $15 and her wallet, containing a credit card and a debit card.
