The robber then took the man's wallet and fled.

Two of the victim's friends were driving north on Beckham at the time and saw the robbery happen.

A burgundy colored Jeep Cherokee was also spotted, but it's not known if that vehicle was part of the robbery. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
