By  | 

Police have a man in custody for robbing another man outside his apartment.

Officials say 20-year-old Bryon Cortez is in jail for the robbery on December 4th near 14th and D streets.

Police say Cortez and five other men approached the 41-year-old victim as he returned home from getting groceries. One of the suspects made a gesture as if he had a gun, but no gun was actually displayed.

The suspects took the man's wallet, but the victim recognized Bryon Cortez as the family member of a former co-worker.

Police are looking for the other men involved.
