A Rocky Mount man escaped relatively unscathed Sunday from an early morning attempted robbery.
Police said a 43-year-old man was on the 200 block of Coleman Avenue when he was approached by two men. The suspects reportedly assaulted him and attempted to rob him, but the victim escaped and called police. Emergency Medical Service personnel treated the victim for minor injuries.
The suspects were described as black men between 5-foot-5 and 6-foot tall with medium builds. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or email@example.com.
