The assault rendered the victim unconscious. When he awoke hours later, the victim’s cash was gone and his cell phone was shattered.
The victim walked to an as yet undetermined location on Princess Anne Street and around 5 a.m. this morning, someone called the victim a cab and had him taken to the hospital. The victim suffered a concussion, two lacerations to his head, and multiple abrasions.
