Six Guys Mug Akron Man for Groceries

Posted By on Wed, Mar 2, 2011 at 2:01 PM


Why does it take six guys to mug a dude for some groceries? Unfortunately, that’s what happened to an individual in Akron this week when he came up against a group of thugs that don’t understand the concept of a fair fight.

Luckily, the 20-year-old victim wasn’t seriously injured after the altercation at the Walgeen’s on West Market Street, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. He was punched in the face by one of the assailants, and then the others made a grab for the groceries.

Police are coming up dry with specific suspects at this time.
