A 20-year-old Cape Coral man told police that he was robbed at knife point while jogging at a park.
The man, a Florida A&M student, said he was at Koza Saladino Park at 301 S.W. 30th Terrace when a Hispanic male grabbed him from behind and robbed him with a knife.
The incident reportedly occurred at 10:10 a.m. Monday.
The victim was told to hand over his gold chain and mp3 player, valued at $650. He was then told to lie down and not look at the suspect, reports state.
The suspect fled the area in a black Jeep Cherokee, the victim told police.
Police canvassed the area but were unsuccessful in locating a suspect. Officials said Tuesday afternoon that no arrests had been made.
A Cape Coral detective continues to investigate the incident.
