Man robbed, beaten at Walnut Grove Apartments


A man told Bloomington Police Department officers he was robbed and beaten Friday in the lobby of the Walnut Grove Apartments on South Walnut Street Pike.

The 49-year-old reported sitting in his wheelchair in the lobby of the apartment complex when two men approached him and began punching him in the face and chest.

He told police he was punched about 12 times before the men took some money out of his wallet and an open pack of cigarettes from his front pocket.

Officers reported the victim had bruising and swelling around his eyes and the sides of his head consistent with his story. They also noticed dried blood in one of his ears.

The victim told police he did not recognize the two men who attacked him, and BPD is requesting that anyone with information on the robbery contact the station.
