Police say a man is robbed in east Tulsa early Tuesday after he is picked up by two men and a woman in a vehicle.

The victim told officers, he was at America's Best Value Inn in the 1000 block of North Garnett Road when the trio offered him a place to stay.

As the vehicle headed south on Garnett, police said one of the people in the car pulled a gun, demanding the victim's money.  After taking his wallet, cell phone and jewelry, the victim was dropped near a Taco Bell in the 1800 block of South Garnett at about 1 a.m.
