WALNUT HILLS, Ohio (Paula Toti) -- A woman is screaming so loud a driver can hear it with his radio on and stops to help. The problem is, it's a set up. Two men with guns rob the man who was just trying to be nice. Local 12's Paula Toti is in Walnut Hills Monday night with how things unfolded.Shane Oney says he gets off 71 every day at Reading in trying to shave off a few blocks on his way to work. Instead of taking Gilbert to Stanford he takes Florence to Concord First and that's why he walked into more than he bargained for. Nothing Shane Oney could do he says, except do what he was told. It all started with the woman who was screaming for help, then out of nowhere a man came right to the driver's side and she came right up to him and Oney knew he had been caught in something.Oney was told to unlock his doors then another guy came from out of nowhere and got into the passenger side with a gun. He started taking money he found from the console as the other guy kept the gun steady. Oney says the gun was, Right on my neck.It's narrow on Concord Street so Oney isn't even sure how he could have bypassed the woman if he wanted to. Walnut Hills Community Council President, Clarence Taylor knows it's a popular shortcut. Taylor says a lot of progress has been made to get investors to come to the area, and new businesses and market rate housing are in the works. And until you really start to go online with that you'll have people looking for individuals to take advantage of.Oney vows to never be that person again, taking a new route to work. After getting 65 bucks from the console the robber asked for his wallet, I reach for the wallet and he says, Ill shoot you, and I said, Want the wallet or not?Oney turned over the wallet and then was made fun of for being broke with no cash inside. The woman and both men ran off. Shane says the guy on the passenger side with the gun was shaking and the other guy was telling him to calm down. It's a situation that really could have turned deadly. If there was one thing about the three that might be a clue, the young African American woman was small with screaming red long hair. He said it looked so fake it had to be a wig. If not and she's out there, it's a clue. The robbers didn't take a cell phone in the car that was in plain sight. Unfortunately it didn't turn up any prints. The robber who touched it was wearing gloves.
