Albany -- An Albany woman was robbed at gunpoint at the 8th Avenue Ballpark Thursday afternoon. She says Albany Police took too long to respond to her calls for help.

Melisha Haynes said about 12:20 she was sitting in her car at the ballpark when a man walked up and asked for a light for his cigarette. She said he then pulled a gun and told her he would kill her if she didn't give him money.

Haynes was too scared to wait at the ballpark as the police dispatcher asked. She went to a nearby store.

She claims when an officer arrived 20-minutes later, he didn't seem interested. Haynes said "It wasn't like it was an emergency. It wasn't like he was in a hurry, or whatever. When he got here, he said now do you want to talk to me. I said yea, what do you think. And he got back in his car and left."

But a check of the 9-1-1 log shows the officer arrived in eleven minutes.

Investigators dusted for fingerprints on Haynes' car and checked the area for the robber.

Haynes says the robber could have attacked other people by the time they did that. Police Department Supervisors are investigating Hayne's complaints.
