Police were called to a residence on Hewitt Drive for a man knocking on doors asking for help on Monday night.
Police contacted a 19-year-old man who told them he’d been assaulted in the alleyway behind one of the homes. The young man had arranged to meet a couple of individuals he’d met while at the beach and buy some drugs from them.
The victim met with the men and was robbed at gunpoint. He was struck in the face with a firearm and sustained an injury to his face, head, and knees. He was taken to Spohn Memorial for medical treatment.
The suspects are described as only 19 to 21 years of age and standing 5’7” to 5’9” feet tall with one of the men being of Hispanic ethnicity. They fled in a small gold four-door sedan, taking an undetermined amount of money.
Anyone with any information on this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS or submit a tip online at www.888TIPS.com. Tipsters will earn a cash reward if the suspects are identified and arrested.
