Coshocton man suffers cuts in street attack

The Cosochton Tribune is reporting a 19-year-old man suffered cuts on his face and a stab wound to his leg during a street robbery Tuesday night.

According to the story, the victim told sheriff's deputies he was attacked by two men as he walked toward a friend's house along the railroad tracks in the 400 block of South Fifth Street shortly after 9 p.m.

"Apparently, one had a knife and cut his face, and cut him in the right leg," Lt. Scott Mast told the Tribune.

The 19-year-old reported turning over all the money he had on him, about $2 in change.

The newspaper reports he told police the knife-wielding robber slashed him when he couldn't produce anything else.

Mast told the Tribune reports one of the robbers repeatedly used a vulgar phrase indicating they were demanding either drugs or cash.

According to the victim, one of the two men who approached him punched him in the stomach and the other grabbed him from behind and held him.

When the robber facing him cut his face, the 19-year-old said, the man holding him acted nervous and told his partner they should flee. Both robbers ran toward Walnut Street after the man with the knife stabbed him in the leg, the robbery victim said.

The 19-year-old said he ran several blocks to his home to call the sheriff's office, found that the phone wasn't working, then ran to a relative's home on Seventh Street to make the call.

The newspaper reports that Coshocton Emergency Medical Services transported the 19-year-old to the emergency room at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital.

Too bad you have to be 21 to buy a handgun.

Too bad you have to be 21 to get a concealed handgun license.

Too bad the government failed to protect this victim after it threw his right to keep and bear arms in the toilet.

Too bad the bad people don't play by the rules.

Too bad, too bad, too bad...
