A customer at the Wild Zebra adult strip club claimed he was robbed at gunpoint outside the Allens Avenue establishment early Friday.
Carl Matthew, 65, told authorities that he paid for a drink around 2:15 a.m. and told dancers he was headed to Club Desire. Two men rushed him as he got into his car on Poe Street. One pressed a silver handgun into his body and warned "don't move or I'll pop your top" and then checked his pockets, Commander Thomas Verdi said.
Matthews handed over about $1,300 in hundreds and twenties. The two suspects fled in a dark colored sedan, possibly a Buick, toward Eddy Street, Verdi said.
