A man walking to work early Wednesday morning was attacked by a man claiming to want a cigarette.
The victim was on foot in the 2000 block of Broadway around 1:15 a.m. when he was approached by the suspect. When he told him he did not have a cigarette, the suspect punched him, threw him to the ground, and repeatedly kicked him.
The suspect then took his wallet and fled northbound. He is described as a white male, in his 30s, 6′ tall and 150 pounds, wearing a gray or white hooded sweatshirt, a gray or white baseball cap and blue jeans.
The victim suffered minor injuries.
