WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police are investigating after they say a man was hit with a handgun before being robbed of his wallet and cell phone early this morning.

They say it happened just after 2 a.m. in the 3000 block of Pauline Lane in Wilmington. Police say the man who was robbed told them he was on the way to see his girlfriend when three men approached him.

That's when they say he was struck with a gun, before the trio stole his wallet and cell phone. Police say the men then took off running from the area. They say no one was seriously hurt during the crime.
