Man told police he was robbed on way to buying marijuana
WILKES-BARRE – A man told police he was pulled from a car, assaulted and robbed after 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to Wilkes-Barre police:
The alleged victim, whose name was not released, told police he met an acquaintance at the Turkey Hill Market on Wilkes-Barre Township Boulevard and got into the person’s car so they could drive somewhere to purchase marijuana.
While driving in the area of Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, an unknown man pulled the alleged victim from the vehicle and began assaulting him, causing him to lose consciousness, he told police. He says he “awoke,” realized he had been assaulted and called a friend before dialing 911.
The alleged victim was transported to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center for an evaluation and for treatment of facial lacerations, said police.
He could not recall what had been taking from him.
