Tyler PD Searching For Two Muggers

Tyler Police are looking for two men who beat and tried to rob a Tyler man.

Raymond Johnson, 41, was walking along the 300 block of North College Street last night when two Hispanic men approached him and began beating him. They tried to take Johnson's wallet out of his back pocket, but Johnson was able to fight off the two men and keep possession of his wallet.

However, Johnson suffered lacerations to his head, face, and arms. He was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Because of the darkness, Johnson was only able to give investigators a vauge description of his attackers.

He descibed them as two Hispanic males, unknown age or build, wearing white or other colored t-shirt and baggy blue jeans.

Anyone who knows anything about the case should call Crimestoppers at (903) 597-2833.
