Police are investigating after a man reported being robbed at gunpoint in Franklin.

Just before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, a man told police he and his son were unloading a trailer in the 900 block of Johnson Avenue. A man on a bike asked him for money to buy coffee, according to a news release.

When he pulled out his wallet, the man on the bike pulled out a gun and took more than $200 in cash and other items and then left, the release said.

The man is described as being 25 to 35 years old, 5-feet-6-inches, with a beard, and was wearing a black sweatshirt, black jacket and dark-colored pants, the release said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Franklin Police Department tip line at 317-346-1111.
