Police were called to 2775 Crossroads Boulevard around 11:40 Sunday night for a report of a robbery. 

Police say the victim, 18-year-old Derrick Olmstead, told officers that he was getting into his car in the parking lot when two men approached him and demanded money. Olmstead says one man had a handgun.

Olmstead was taken to Covenant Medical Center where he was treated for minor injuries.
