Columbus Police are searching for two people who committed a strong-armed robbery near Third and Sycamore streets.
A witness saw two males jump out of a white Chevrolet passenger car at 3:21 p.m. Sunday and begin to attack a 59-year-old male pedestrian, according to Columbus Police spokesman Lt. Matt Myers.
According to the victim, the juvenile males first demanded his wallet, which he immediately handed over to them. But when the witness began shouting, the suspects jumped back in their car and were last seen speeding eastbound on Second Street, Myers said.
While the pedestrian, who said he was struck in the face, complained of minor pain, investigators said he sustained no visible marks and refused medical treatment, Myers said.
A police search did not turn up any sign of the robbers.
Those with information on the robbery are urged to contact investigating Patrolman Zach Burbrink at 376-2600. Tips may be left anonymously.
