The victim reported that on August 4, at 7:50 pm, he was approached by two individuals who “punched him in the face and removed approximately $300 dollars before fleeing southbound on 7th Avenue.” According to the description, “one [was] wearing a Rolling Stones t-shirt and the other a white t-shirt. Both were riding scooters.”
The victim refused medical attention.
