No one was hurt Monday night during a robbery reported at an apartment building in the 100 block of T Street, Merced police said.
The incident was reported around 8:50 p.m. after a lone gunman threatened a 41-year-old man who was renovating a unit at the building. The gunman, who had his face covered and wore a burgundy sweatshirt and pants, walked inside and brandished a sawed off shotgun, demanding money from the victim, according to Lt. Bimley West.
The victim handed over a small amount of cash, and the robber fled eastbound on foot, West said.
Police said the victim wasn't hurt during the robbery.
