SoVaNow.com / August 28, 2014
South Boston Police are looking for the person who assaulted and robbed a citizen on Cherry Street early Monday, Aug. 25. Officers were called at 4:42 a.m. to the scene where the victim told them he was walking to McDonald’s when he was assaulted by a black male who was wearing a black hoodie.

The victim said the suspect took his wallet which contained an undisclosed amount of money.

The victim was transported by Patient Transport to Halifax Regional Hospital where he was treated and released for his injuries.

South Boston Police Capt. B.K. Lovelace said Halifax County Sheriff’s deputies assisted in looking for the suspect and brought in their K-9 tracking dog, but were unsuccessful in finding the suspect.

The investigation into the incident is continuing and Lovelace asks that anyone with any information should call Detective Chris Carswell at (434)575-4273 or the Halifax Crime Line at (434)476-8445.
