A man reported being robbed by a stranger who approached him on the street.
The man was outside the Watertown Boy’s & Girl’s Club on Whites Avenue at about 7:19 a.m. on Dec. 8 getting ready to open up the club for the swim team when a car pulled up, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
“The car parked a few spaces in front of his and a male walked in his direction and passed him,” Lawn said. “He turned around and confronted him and said ‘Give me your wallet and your money.'”
The man told the suspect that he only had $3, and gave it to the suspect.
“The suspect took the $3, threw it on the ground, ran to his vehicle and fled,” Lawn said.
Watertown Police are investigating the incident.
