Two assailants attacked a man in Wallingford after trying to steal his PSP and Nike Shoes last weekend, a police report says. The victim was treated at the UW hospital for a loose tooth and lacerations to his head from being punched, but was able to escape without having anything stolen.

The man was walking home March 27 around 3 a.m. when two men approached him at 45th and Wallingford Ave. The suspects told him he had a very nice PSP and Nike shoes. The victim told the men that they could buy their own stuff. One of the suspects then made a grab for the video game handheld, but the victim pulled it out of reach. The suspect then allegedly punched the victim in the face. The other suspect grabbed him and punched him in the back of the head.

He fought back and was able to scramble away. A group of people came out of a nearby bar and started yelling at the suspects to leave him alone. The suspects ran off. The report does not note any arrests. The victim's mother drove him to the hospital where he was treated for his injuries and met with police.
