Man robbed at gunpoint outside apartment building


A 33-year-old Columbia man was robbed outside his apartment in Harper's Choice village Monday night, Howard County police said yesterday.

Sanford W. Salley Jr. was approached from behind by three men on the sidewalk outside his apartment building, Sgt. Steven Keller, a police spokesman said.

One of the men put a black long-barrel revolver to Salley's head and demanded his money, a police report said. A second man took Salley's wallet, police said, and all three fled on foot.

Salley was not injured in the incident.
