A Byron man was struck from behind and robbed late Thursday outside the Holiday Foodmart at 1001 Leverette Road.
Gregory Alexander Manson, 34, was treated at Houston Medical Center for cuts and bruises and possible facial fractures, according to a Houston County sheriff’s incident report.
Houston County sheriff’s Capt. Robert Clark said the man told authorities he was struck from behind after leaving the convenience store and that $30 was stolen from his wallet.
According to the incident report, Manson told a sheriff’s deputy that after he was struck, he was ordered to “get down man, get down.” He said he was struck in the head and kicked while he was on the ground.
The incident happened about 10:30 p.m., according to the incident report. Manson told a sheriff’s deputy he never got a look at his attackers but estimated there were three to four men who surrounded him, the report said.
