EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Evansville police respond to calls of a hold-up in the 600 block of East Columbia street. 

The victim of the robbery called police from a food stand.

First he said he was walking down the street when the suspect pulled a gun on him and then said he was in a different location.

Chandler says police are familiar with the suspect, who has a criminal past.

Evansville police are still investigating the case and Chandler says police are still on scene trying to follow up on leads and get statements.
