A Perry man was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon after washing his truck at a car wash.
The incident happened about 1 p.m. at Easy Clean Car Wash located at 1308 Main St., said Perry police Capt. Heath Dykes.
A 64-year-old man had just finished washing his Dodge Dakota when he was approached by a suspect described as a black male in his early 30s, between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet tall with a thin build. The suspect brandished a small-caliber handgun and demanded the victims wallet, Dykes said.
The suspect struck the victim multiple times in the head with the handgun and left with the truck after a scuffle. Later, officers found the truck abandoned at a nearby shopping center, but two firearms belonging to the victim and an undisclosed amount of money were missing.
The victim was taken to Perry Hospital, treated and released, Dykes said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Tom Daly at the Perry Police Department at 478-988-2848 or 478-288-2821.
