    Boise, May 17, 2011 - Boise Police are searching for the suspect in a robbery that reportedly occurred last night on the sidewalk of the Capitol Blvd bridge. A man called police at 10:00 p.m. last night and reported he had been walking north across the bridge when a dark-skinned male approached him walking south. The suspect demanded the cigar the victim was smoking. The suspect then lifted his jacket to display what appeared to be a handgun and demanded a cell phone. When the victim said he didn't have a cell phone, the suspect took the cigar and walked off, continuing south across the bridge. The victim walked to a nearby phone and called police. Officers immediately searched the area but did not locate the suspect. The suspect is described as a dark skinned male wearing a grey hoodie and a black beanie. Officers are currently following leads in this case.
