CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - A 20-year-old jogger shared photos of injuries with FOX 46 Charlotte. He was assaulted and robbed while exercising in Reedy Creek Park.
You can see the stitches to the inside and outside of his hands, and also his arm.
He spoke with FOX 46 off camera, telling us he was jogging alone around 11:00 a.m. on Sunday at the park on Rocky River Rd. when it happened.
He remembers a man came out of nowhere, started slicing him with a knife and took off with his money and cell phone.
This attack is startling to the communities that surround and attend the park.
"I think it's tragic very tragic for something like that to happen I mean in broad daylight,” said one person who regularly goes to the park.
Since this park is well used by families and exercisers, the community and the victim feel it's important people know this happened.
“The park of all places, minding his own business exercising, that's really crazy it's not a laughing matter but we have to do something about this.”
