The 61-year-old made a purchase at around 2 a.m. As he left the store, a man in his 30s assaulted him and took money, Officer Charley Davidson said.

The man left in a silver four-door sedan with five spoke wheels. He’s described as being six-feet tall, 160 pounds with black hair, brown eyes wearing a white tank top and jeans, Davidson said.
