Around 6 a.m. Aug. 11 an officer responded to a convenience store in the 1300 block of Prince Street for a robbery report.

An intoxicated man with lacerations on his arm and hand consistent with glass cuts, said he was jumped by a group of males while he was walking in the area of 14th and Prince streets. He said they took his wallet and sped off in a vehicle after he was “able to fight them off using his superior fighting prowess.”

The 25-year-old asked the officer for a ride back to his residence.

On arrival the officer noted two windows on the residence were broken out and there were blood droplets on the floor.

The man said the suspects must have gone to his residence and broken out his windows after the robbery.

The officer noted intent to consult the district attorney’s office about the incident.
