19 year old Tim Page was crossing over the parking lot of the C-V-S drugstore headed to Dunkin Donuts on southeast State Road 40, when he says three guys approached him and asked for change. When he told them he didn't have any, Page says one of them came up behind him and punched him in the head with his fist.
Page says, "I was a little confused. I had to think. I was like, oh great, what do i do now? I have to get to somebody."
He was carrying $20 but the would-be robbers never got their hands on it because he ran across the street to a nearby car.
Page says once he got across the street a man and a woman helped him by calling the cops and providing the direction in which the attackers escaped. Two of the three attackers, 17 year old Jeffrey Robinson and 17 year old Don Wesley Jr, have been caught.
