Man Beaten, Robbed, Suspects Spotted on Camera

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two men beat a man to unconsciousness and tried to use an ATM card police believe they stole from the victim, but all that did was tell police what they look like.

The assault happened outside the 63-year-old victim's apartment on Alden Road Friday night shortly after 10 p.m.

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman Dewayne Richardson released a statement saying officers found the victim bleeding from a head wound.

The victim reported that two suspects approached him as he walked to his home, and one of them pointed a gun at his face, then hit hit with the gun while the other suspect held his arms behind his back.

The victim lost consciousness, and said he awoke to see the two men leaving the Carrington Place apartment complex in a dark vehicle.

He also learned his wallet and keys had been stolen. Police began looking for use of the victim's stolen goods. It didn't take long.

Within an hour, the suspects reportedly tried to use the victim's ATM cars at the Gate gas station on Atlantic Boulevard at Century 21.

They were unable to get any money, but the store's surveillance cameras recorded them entering the store.
