Men rob Ohio victim but make sure he has bus fare


Associated Press

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say robbers who held up an Ohio man at gunpoint gave him back enough money for bus fare before running away.

It happened at a Dayton bus stop on Tuesday morning. The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/O2hB3b ) reports that two men walked up, and one of them put a gun to the victim's forehead and ordered him to hand over everything in his pockets.

The victim gave them $40 and his cellphone.

Before fleeing on foot, one of the men asked the victim if he had enough money for the bus. When he said no, one handed him back $2.

The suspects are still being sought.
