While waiting for a bus in the 9200 block of West Congress Street at 1:40 p.m. Dec. 6, a man in shorts walked up to a woman while pulling his hooded sweat shirt over his face, reached into his pocket and pulled out a large black revolver, according to a Wauwatosa police report.

Also from the report:

The man seemed nervous, shaking the gun pointed at the woman's chest.

"Give me your phone," he demanded, she told officers.

The Milwaukee woman hastily complied, and the robber jogged off. The woman said he came from an apartment complex near the bus stop, but went in a different direction.

Police combed the area for him, turning up no suspects.
