TYLER (KLTV) - A man unloading his car for the night is injured after refusing to hand over money to would-be robbers.

The 62-year-old man was struck in the face when he refused to give up his money. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle after the man's wife came outside.

The suspects are described as being 20-30 years old, both wearing bandanas and one was armed with a gun.
