A man was robbed at gunpoint outside a Barnes Road gas station early Thursday, Colorado Springs police said.

He was walking out of the station at Barnes Road and Oro Blanco Drive just before 2 a.m. when the pistol-packing mugger demanded his wallet and other valuables, police said.

Police were still piecing together the case and didn't issue a description of the mugger.

They did say he drove off in an "unknown" car.
