A teenager was left shaken after he was robbed at a park near Otterbein University.
Lisa Brunori said she stopped to help the teenager.
"You could tell he was truly scared," Brunori said. "It wasn't just a prank or him playing around."
Westerville police said that the 15-year-old victim was fishing alone at Alum Creek Park when a man approached him and demanded his wallet.
"The victim conveyed to us that he felt something against the back of his head, which he assumed was a firearm," Westerville Police Sgt. Charles Chandler said.
Police said that the victim, whose identity was not released, handed over his wallet.
"The suspect then threw the wallet into the water and asked the victim to remove shoes and socks," Chandler said.
The teenager told police that the robber tossed the victim's cell phone, shoes and socks into the water before fleeing the scene.
"He looked extremely scares and he said he needed to use my phone to call the police," Brunori said.
The victim was expected to recover. He was not seriously injured.
