COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus Police are investigating a case of impersonation. It happened Tuesday afternoon at a house on 23rd Street.

Police say nothing was taken and no one was injured.  According to police documents, no one was arrested at the scene.  

Police are also investigating the robbery of a woman over $2.

The 52-year-old victim tells officers she was walking near the intersection of 4th Avenue and 29th Street around 3:00 a.m. Wednesday when she was approached by a black man between 30 and 40-years-old.

She says the man threatened her with a pocket knife and took $2 from her.

She tells police he was wearing a green jacket, jeans, a black skull cap, boots, and had a beard.
