Macon police responded to a call early Thursday morning about a man being robbed after he was struck with an object, possibly a brick, according to a police report.
The victim told officers a man approached him at the corner of Mulberry and Third streets and threatened to hit the victim unless he gave him his wallet. The victim pulled out pepper spray and chased the man away.
Later, as the victim walked toward the Interstate 16 West exit ramp, the man jumped out of some bushes and struck him above the eye with an object, causing two cuts near his left eye. While the victim was down, the man went through the victim’s pockets, then fled toward Main Street.
The victim was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia. His assailant was described as a black male, early 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and 150 pounds with short hair and a medium complexion.
