Two men attacked a pedestrian Sunday evening in the Unionville neighborhood.

The incident happened at Moseley Avenue and May Avenue after 8 p.m., according to a Macon police incident report.

The victim, Benjamin Williams of Macon, told police he was walking along Moseley Avenue when two black men jumped out of a red truck and began beating him. The men kicked him when he fell to the floor, threw beer bottles at him and tried to run him over.

Williams told police one of the men reached into his pocket and stole his cellphone.

A witness scared off the attackers, and Williams was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia, the report said.
