As he walked back to his car, he told police, two men converged on him. He was struck on his head by a hard object, which police later said left a mark consistent with the butt of a handgun. The men tried to tackle the driver, but he fought back. He told police that he clamped one of his attackers in a headlock, and the other started kicking him. The would-be robbers ran off.
Police noted that the driver had a large bruise and a 3-inch cut on his head. He described his attackers as being black males, both about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds, wearing black hoodies and dark pants. However, he said he could not identify the suspects he described.
