Police: Man followed off Metro bus attacked, robbed

MOUNT HEALTHY, OH (FOX19) - Police are searching for four men who allegedly beat and robbed a man as he walked off the Metro bus.

It happened at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Kinney Avenue.

According to police, four men on the bus with the victim exited the bus at the same time.

When they all stepped off the bus, they demanded the victims backpack.

The victim told police he refused to give up his back pack and that's when the four men attacked him. Two of the suspects pulled out a black 9 mm handgun and pointed it at the victim.

The victim still refused to hand over his backpack.

In retaliation, one of the suspects hit the victim in the back of the head with a gun and he fell to the ground.

All four of the suspects ran away on Kinney Avenue with the victims backpack.

When the victim started to chase the suspects, someone started to fire shots at which point he stopped chasing and flagged down police.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 or the Mt. Healthy Police Department at 513-728-3183.
