A male and female victim were walking on East Main Street near Haines Street at about 7:35 p.m. when a car drove past them, police said, and a white male in the car made a comment to the female victim.
The victims continued walking and within a few minutes were confronted by an unknown black male suspect and an unknown white male suspect. The victims recognized the white male suspect as the male who had just called out to the female victim.
The black male suspect told the male victim he was going to rob him – and property was taken from the male victim – and then attempted to punch him, police said.
The suspects began attacking both victims, and a second black male suspect started attacking the male victim, police said.
The assault continued until bystanders got involved, and the suspects fled in a black sedan on East Delaware Avenue.
