Rogue dials R for robbery 

A 24-year-old man was robbed Wednesday morning after allowing another man to borrow his cellphone, police said.

The man was walking near Fifth and Market streets when another man approached him and asked to use his phone. After making a call, the man returned the phone to the victim, but then simulated a gun in his pocket and grabbed it back.

The thief fled and no arrests had been reported as of Wednesday.
