A 25-year-old Selma man was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night in the alley behind a downtown restaurant.

According to an incident report from the Selma Police Department, the victim, an employee at El Rancheros, was robbed while taking a smoke break around 8:20 p.m.

The victim told officers he had just stepped out the back door of the restaurant to smoke when he was approached by an unknown black male armed with a gun. He told officers the suspect was wearing blue jeans and had a red shirt over his face.

The suspect allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and told him “give me everything you got.”

The victim said he cooperated and gave the gunman $40 in cash, his cell phone, and his debit card.

The suspect then fled the scene. When officers arrived on the scene, they searched the area but could not find the suspect.

No arrest has been made in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Selma Police Department at (334) 874-2125.
