Temple police spokesman Cpl. Christopher Wilcox said officers were sent at around 7:45 p.m. Sunday to North 3rd Street at West Garfield Avenue after a caller reported he had been threatened with a gun.
The victim told police he was approached while at a coin laundry by a man carrying a gun, and said the gunman demanded he hand over all of his money.

In a news release Wilcox said general investigations officers are continuing to investigate the incident but no additional information was released in order to avoid compromising the ongoing investigation.
