The complainant told police he was approached by a black man who brandished a firearm and demanded money, Rice said.

The assailant was described as about 6 feet 2 inches tall, with short black hair and "distinct acne" on his face, Rice said. The man reportedly was wearing a black shirt and jeans at the time, she said.
