PELHAM, N.Y. A Pelham man was robbed and assaulted by two men after parking his car in the DeCiccos parking lot Monday at 3:15 a.m., Pelham Police said.
The Third Avenue resident, who was also stabbed, recounted the story to officers who went to his apartment shortly after the incident.
The victim told officers that he was approached from behind by two men near the northwest exit of the parking lot and they demanded money, police said. It was at that time he noticed one of the suspects displaying a knife.
When the suspects demanded money, the victim told them that he did not have his wallet, and they responded, Youre from Pelham you got money. Both suspects then began to assault the victim and a scuffle ensued as the victim fought back, police said. He noticed the suspect with the knife stabbing at him, police said.
Moments later, both suspects ran west on Second Street. A sergeant and officer searched the area but found no suspects. The Pelham Fire Department had arrived at the scene and was treating the victims injuries. The man, who had red marks on his face, an abrasion over his right eye, a blood stained shirt, and a laceration to his abdomen, was transported to Sound Shore Medical Center.
A Pelham officer took pictures of the man's injuries at the hospital. The victim was released from the hospital within an hour and Pelham detectives were notified of the incident.
