Apparently, times are that hard.

Man robbed at gunpoint ... for $5


Apparently, times are that hard.

A man around the age of 50 was walking along Sansom Street near 53rd, in West Philadelphia, when he was approached by a gun-wielding man at about 1 a.m.

The armed man robbed the victim at gunpoint and ran off with a grand total of $5.

Information on the suspect was limited early Friday morning, but he was described as a tall black man, with a medium complexion and wavy hair.
