A 21-year-old man was in his car on Monday, July 11 at around 4:20 a.m. when he was attacked and robbed of over $300. The victim was sitting in the driver’s side of his vehicle at 62nd Street and 14th Avenue when a man approached him and asked for a cigarette. When the man said no, the perp asked for the keys to his car. The victim once again said no, resulting in the perp punching him in the face through the window.

When the victim got out of the vehicle to defend himself, two other thugs appeared from the rear of the car and started punching him as well. During the altercation, one of the perps reached into the man’s front right pocket and stole $300, then fled westbound to 63rd Street heading towards 13th Avenue.
