Police search for two suspects in attempted robbery Wednesday

A 30-year-old man reported being attacked while walking home from buying a beverage at a gas station Wednesday night.

The Bloomington Police Department responded to the incident, which occurred near the East location of Bloomingfoods, around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The man said two males approached him as he walked home.

One of the men stopped him and demanded his wallet and phone, according to the police.

When he refused to give up his belongings, he said, the other man charged at him.

The man stepped out of the way and pushed the man who charged him to the ground, according to the police report. 

The two suspects then reportedly walked away, and the man walked home and called police.

Nothing was stolen and there were no injuries reported.

One suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, around 230 pounds and wearing a purple hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

The other suspect, also a black male weighing around 230 pounds, was 5 feet 9 inches, the man reported. The second suspect was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt.

The incident is still under investigation.
