The suspects, described as a white male and a black male between the ages of 20 and 25, asked the man if he wanted a ride and if he had any money. The victim said he was not carrying his wallet.

Then, one of suspect reached up and hit the victim in the face with a wooden object, similar to a baseball bat. According to the report, the man fell to his knees and the suspects laughed at him.

A suspect opened the door, grabbed the bag of tools, and the pair drove off.
