WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A reported robbery victim told police that the robber made him “pinky promise” that he wouldn’t call authorities after stealing $80 from him in Warren.

The victim said the robbery happened near the Pit Stop gas station around 10:40 p.m. Sunday, according to a police report.

The 22-year-old man said he was walking along Youngstown Road SE when he was approached by a man wearing a ski mask. He said the man asked him if he was a drug dealer, and when he responded that he wasn’t, he said the robber pulled out a pocket knife and demanded money from him.

According to the report, the victim estimated that the robber took about $80 from him before making him “pinky promise” that he wouldn’t call the cops.

The robber rode off on a bicycle, according to the report.

Police said the victim was not able to give them a good description of the robber as it was dark at the time of the robbery.

Officers checked the area near Pit Stop for a man riding a bicycle but were unable to find anyone.
