Valdosta man assaulted, perps ran away

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

About 6:30 Tuesday evening, a man says he was attacked in the 1300 block of Willow Way. The unidentified victim told Valdosta Police Officers he was walking east on Willow Way towards Clay Road when a gray Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300, approached him from the rear and passed him. 

He said the vehicle stopped and backed up to him, so he ran to the front porch of a nearby house, and three men jumped out of the car and chased him.

He said one of them hit him in the face with an unknown object and the second one kicked him, and they both males began trying to remove items from his pockets, but  they ran off empty handed.  

The victim said one was an African American male with short hair, possibly wearing braces or gold teeth. The other was an African American male, about 6 foot, with long dread locks. The victim could only describe the third offender as an African American male. 

If anyone has any information regarding this assault, they are asked to contact the Valdosta Police Department Person’s Crime Unit at 229-293-3145, or leave information anonymously at 229-293-3091.
