Driver robbed after fender bender on busy street

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police said a fender bender turned into much more when an argument broke out and the victim was robbed.

It happened at the intersection of Baum Boulevard and Liberty Avenue.

The victim told police a driver hit the back of his car and refused to give his information, so the victim allegedly pulled out his cellphone and began recording.

That's when the situation turned violent, with the driver stealing the victim's phone and then taking $200 from the victim's pocket.
