LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – When a man got a call from a childhood friend asking for a ride, he agreed to it but probably wishes he hadn't.

Louisville Metro Police say the robbery took place March 26. The victim said after he picked up his friend, Deshan James Williams, 20, of Louisville, Williams pulled a gun and demanded money.  After the friend refused, Williams struck him on the head with the gun. The friend gave Williams $80 he had on him.

Williams was not satisfied and searched the car and found an additional $1,500 which the victim and his friend had been saving for a trip. Once he had the money, Williams threw the car keys out of the window and fled.

Williams was arrested May 2 and charged with robbery.
