A Northfield woman was robbed at gunpoint Friday by a man on a bicycle near the Pleasantville border.

Northfield police Chief Bob James said a city resident was walking on Dolphin Avenue about 9 p.m. after getting off at the bus stop on Shore Road. She was approached by a male in dark clothing who showed a gun and demanded her purse, James said.

The suspect rode off on his bicycle toward Pleasantville, he said.

James declined to discuss the contents of the purse.

Anyone with information is asked to call Northfield police at 609-641-6832.
