The driver tried to call to him through the passenger side window, when an accomplice, grabbed the victim's shoulder from behind and pressed a pistol against his side.

The robbers took a backpack, wallet, two jackets, and a set of keys and drove off.

Officers say a witness followed the suspect vehicle and they were quickly found by police.
