A 19-year-old Columbia woman told police she was robbed around 8 p.m. Friday at Cosmo Park by a man who appeared to have a gun, according to a Columbia police news release.

The woman, whose name police withheld, was returning to her car after walking her dog in the park, when a man approached her and demanded money. According to the release, the man threatened her by touching the handle of a gun that was tucked into his pants. After the woman gave him an undisclosed amount of cash, the man drove away in a blue, new model Buick Riviera with tinted windows, the release said.
