COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A Columbus man is robbed when he agrees to give two people a ride.

It happened late Wednesday night downtown.

Robert Adkins, 61, says a man and woman came up to him a Lil Joe's Package Store on 5th Street and 3rd Avenue and asked for a ride. At first he said no but then agreed.

Police say once the couple got in the car, they pulled a gun on him and forced him to drive two blocks away where they robbed him in the parking lot of Lil Kim's Cove.

Adkins was not injured in the incident.
