Man robbed at gunpoint outside bar in Cleveland West Bank of the Flats

CLEVELAND, Ohio— A 34-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint late Tuesday outside a bar in the West Bank of the Flats.

The robbery happened about 3:30 a.m. outside of McKinley’s Downtown bar on Main Avenue, police reports say.

The man told police he got off work from the bar and left to drive a co-worker to a different bar. The co-worker asked if he could get a ride back to McKinley’s later in the night, police reports say.

The man pulled into a parking space and two men— one wearing a black bandanna, the other a green bandanna— walked up to the car, pointed a gun at both men and demanded “everything,” police reports say.

The robbers stole $300, a cellphone and keys to his house and Jeep, according to police reports.
