A man was robbed at gunpoint in Hammond early Friday morning, and police are on the hunt for the robber who made off with the victim’s cash and truck.
The incident happened about 7:15 a.m. outside the victim’s business near South Morrison and Demarco boulevards, said Hammond police Lt. Vince Giannobile.
A man approached the victim, wielding a handgun and demanding his cash, the lieutenant said.
