Gainesville police are investigating a Monday evening reported robbery.

Around 8:24 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23, officers responded to a residence in the 1700 block of Buck Street in reference to a robbery, Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Belva McClinton said.

A 17-year-old male reported to police that there was a knock at the door and when he answered, an unknown man pushed the door opened and pointed a rifle at him, according to McClinton.

There were no reported injuries.

The man reportedly stole a phone and an undetermined amount of cash from the 17-year-old, police say.

The suspect, who was described as Hispanic, was approximately 5’9” tall, McClinton said. He was wearing a black shirt, black pants and wire framed glasses.

He reportedly left the scene in a black pickup.

Police said Tuesday, Nov. 24, that no one had been identified in the reported robbery yet.
