A man who says he was flagged down on Lake Avenue by Slayton Settlement Road over the weekend says he was robbed by gun-toting thieves who then set his car on fire.

The victim was a 34-year-old man from Newfane and he says the incident took place around 3 in the morning when he was going to get some food.

According to a police report, the victim slowed down and someone asked him for directions to Olcott. That's when another man with a gun came over and help up the driver, taking $500 from his wallet.

The car was a total loss after the blaze.
