Man beaten, robbed while walking on railroad tracks

A man reported being beaten and robbed at gunpoint Tuesday near Georgia Street and Central Court.

The victim told police that he and a female acquaintance were walking along the railroad tracks around 8 p.m. when they were approached by another man, the RPD release stated.

Words were exchanged between the two men as they passed each other, and then the victim said he heard a gunshot.

The victim was grabbed from behind by the man and forced to the ground, according to the report. He was struck several times in the face with the man’s fists and a small black handgun.

The robber pointed the gun at the victim and took his wallet and his red Samsung cellphone, the RPD reported. The phone is worth $250 and the wallet contained no money.

The victim suffered a large cut under his eye that required seven sutures, several scratches on his face, had one of his teeth knocked out and complained of back pain, according to the release.

The suspect was described as a black man, 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a medium build and wearing black pants and a black hoodie.
