An attempted robbery left a 62-year-old man with heavy bruising and a grievously swollen lip Tuesday after his alleged assailants beat him with a brick, according to a Columbus Police report.
The victim told police he was near the intersection of Olive Street and 11th Avenue when two men attempted to rob him. They punched him and beat him with a brick repeatedly, leaving him with a substantially blackened eye and swollen lips.
One suspect was described as 5-foot-2 black man with light skin. He was described as clean-shaven with a long scar on his left arm. He was wearing a yellow shirt at the time of the assault, according to the report.
The other suspect is described as a 6-foot-1, dark-skinned black man who weighs between 200 and 215 pounds. He had a faint mustache and was wearing a dark shirt at the time of the assault, the victim told police.
