A 24-year-old woman was robbed on Wednesday morning on Fernwood Road after a man in a pickup truck approached her and demanded her belongings, said police.

At around 8:45 a.m., a gray pickup truck stopped in front of a home on Fernwood Rd. and a man got out of the vehicle and approached the woman as she was walking to her car, said Sgt.
