The victim reportedly said he was on the north side of his home, in the 2300 block of Southeast Eighth Place, when a black man wearing sunglasses and a bandana over his face grabbed him from behind and stated, “Gimme your money, give me your wallet, don’t fight me, I’m not gonna hurt (you), just do what I tell you.”
The robbery was reported at 11:20 a.m.
