Man attacked and robbed by two suspects

A man was struck in the head and robbed.  This morning at approximately 2:30 a.m., the victim had his headphones in listening to music. He was walking back to his house in the 2200 block of E. Olive St when he was suddenly struck in the back of his head by a blunt object causing him to be knocked to the ground.

When he turned around, the two suspects were standing over him. One of the suspects was pointing a shotgun at the victim’s face. The suspect then struck the  victim in the face with the shotgun several times. The suspects forcibly took the victim’s cell phone and wallet and fled the scene. The victim called 911 from his house. The victim sustained lacerations requiring stitches to the back of his head and under his left eye

Containment was quickly set up and a K-9 track was attempted without success.

Anyone with information about the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call 911. Anonymous tips are welcome.

The suspects are described as black males in their late teens to early 20s, 5’9 to 6’0 feet tall, average build. One suspect was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and the second suspect wore a dark hooded sweatshirt. Both had the hoods over their heads during the incident.
