A township man was charged with robbery and tampering with evidence after he robbed a man in a parking lot and forced himself into the victim's car, Detective Steve Wexler said. Randy Galloway, 38, of Woodlake Manor Drive, was outside a convenience store at 105 Cedar Bridge Ave. when a sedan with two men and one woman pulled in at about noon Monday, Wexler said. One man got out of the car to go into a store and Galloway approached him and asked him for money, while pointing to his waist to imply he had a handgun, police said. Galloway told the man to get back into the car, where the two others were waiting, Wexler said. Galloway also got in the car and ordered them to drive him to Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Center Street, a block away. Galloway then forced the same man out of the car, and rifled through the victim's pockets, Wexler said. Galloway next let the man go back to the car, and the victims drove away and called police. Patrolman Daniel Merrill responded and was assisted by officers Erik Menck, Chase Messer and Rodney Youmans. Read full article from Margaret F. Bonafide of APP here.
