Robbery by handgun
Scotts Lane (at Route 1 overpass) 
6PM
Complainant states that offender approached him with black handgun and demanded his cellphone, which compl refused to do. Offender then struck compl on the head with the gun. Offender was last seen east on Scotts Lane.

The compl posted his experience on Facebook: Hi everyone! Please be alert and on the look out at about 5:50 to 6:10 as I was walking home from the train station, a young african american kid, about 5’7 – 5’9, came from behind, all dressed in black in a hoodie, with a goat tee, put a gun in front of me asking for my phone. I talked to him in order to distract him. He hit me on the head with the gun as he tried to intimidate me thinking I would give up my phone. I didn’t. This happened right on Scotts Lane right on the overpass above the highway. It appeared he was distracted by all the cars that were crossing, therefore putting the gun behind his back. I kept talking to him asking him, why are you doing this, etc. Too many cars kept passing and he just said “hey i’m kidding, it was all a prank, etc.” then he walked away, perhaps he was waiting for me to take a picture, yet I walked away as well and kept my cool. Apparently this guy was walking up and down Scotts Lane around Scott Mills, the park (McDevitt). Please watch your surroundings. I never expected this to happen during day light in East Falls. Take care.
