Columbus police are seeking two men in connection with an armed robbery Thursday night at Mike''s Lounge on Alabama Street.
A woman pulling into the rear parking lot of the bar, located at 716 Alabama St., at 10:36 p.m. was reportedly approached by two black men before she could exit her vehicle. One of the men displayed a silver revolver and demanded money. The victim didn''t have any money so the men stole her cell phone and fled the scene.
The CPD''s Criminal Investigation Division is handling the investigation.
Anyone with information related to the robbery is asked to contact the Columbus Police Department at 244-3500 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.

odds are the gun wasn't loaded and the suspects were illiterate.

Not sure I agree with the above poster on the gun being empty. There should be some control of the sale of ammo to illiterates. Oh wait, I bet the gun was stolen...now that make perfect sense !
