“(The man) told the unknown suspects that he did not have anything,” the report says. “(The man) stated one of the unknown suspects hit him in the abdomen.”

The man fell over and lost consciousness, the report says, before waking up to find the two men running away. He also found himself bleeding, according to the report.

“(The man) did not know what the unknown suspect hit him with in the abdomen, but he began bleeding from a puncture wound,” the report says. “(the man) also had a laceration above his right eye from where he fell and hit the concrete with his head when he lost consciousness.”
