DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton high school student says he was robbed at the bus stop.

Dayton police are investigating after the teen said someone pointed a gun at him Thursday morning at the intersection of Catalpa Drive and West Fairview Avenue.

A police report indicates that a tablet and money were stolen. It says the teen told his mother the suspect was wearing a black scarf over his face.

2 NEWS spoke with the victim’s mother, Tiffany Harding.

She says that the district’s high school transportation system isn’t ideal.

“I don’t feel like it’s safe at all,” Harding said. “I mean, this may sound so cliché but have a patrol officer at least maybe to ride around during school hours for like an hour and then maybe after school hours.”

Police are still searching for the suspect.

Call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867 if you have any information about the crime.
