A street mug­ging, which en­ded with the vic­tim both bea­ten and rob­bed, is get­ting a hi­gher prio­ri­ty ra­ting at the Hawkesbury OPP de­tach­ment.

Po­lice have is­sued a re­quest for pu­blic as­sis­tance to iden­ti­fy the people in­vol­ved in a mug­ging at­tack against a se­nior in Vank­leek Hill on Aug. 31. A 67-year-old man was wal­king along Main Street in the vil­lage in the mi­daf­ter­noon, bet­ween the hours of 3:30 and 4 p.m.

He was in­ter­cep­ted by one or more people who were wai­ting in a car par­ked in front of the post of­fice at 35 Main Street East. The man was for­ced in­to the ve­hicle and or­de­red to give the rob­bers mo­ney.

He was ta­ken to a lo­ca­tion on Coun­ty Road 10, about two ki­lo­metres west of the vil­lage, bea­ten and then left at the site. The po­lice in­ci­dent brief states he sus­tai­ned mi­nor in­ju­ries from the as­sault.

The sus­pect ve­hicle in the in­ci­dent is des­cri­bed as an ol­der mo­del, four-door car, light grey in co­lour. Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion conti­nues and anyone with in­for­ma­tion on ei­ther the ve­hicle, or the sus­pect or sus­pects in­vol­ved in the rob­be­ry and as­sault, can ei­ther call the Hawkesbury OPP de­tach­ment at 613632-2729 or toll-free at 1-888-310-1122, or the Cri­meS­top­pers confi­den­tial tips line at 1-800-222-8477.

Le PPO de­mande l’aide du pu­blic afin de trou­ver des sus­pects qui ont vo­lé et agres­sé une per­sonne aî­née, à Vank­leek Hill, à la fin du mois d’août.
