The victim said he was driving east on Batto Place, when three local men walked in front of his vehicle forcing him to stop the car. Suspect #1 jumped into the back seat and choked him from behind while restraining the victim against the driver’s seat. Suspect #2 opened the driver’s door, grabbed the victim’s cell phone and wallet from a cup holder. Suspect #2 took money from the wallet and the cell phone while the third suspect stood by the car watching the crime occur.

All three suspects ran east toward a barracks area, disappearing into the dark. The victim was unable to describe the three suspects due to poor visibility.
