The 49-year-old victim was walking near Junction Boulevard and 34th Road around 3:30 a.m. on Monday March 6 when he was attacked from behind, police said.

The suspect put the man in a chokehold until he passed out and then stole the victim’s wallet, watch and jewelry before fleeing the scene.

The victim suffered a laceration to the back of the head, but refused medical attention at the scene.

The suspect is described as a 25 to 30-year-old Hispanic man, about 5-foot-9 with a medium build. He was last seen wearing sweatpants, a blue jacket and white sneakers.
