Homeless man assaulted and robbed in Barbour Park

A homeless man, who was hanging about Barbour Park, not far from Carroll Street, one of the most crime-ridden section of the city, was assaulted little before 8pm.

The vagabond, 23-year-old, was approached by three assailants, who demanded he hand over his possessions, but before he could comply with the request they assaulted him over the head with what he perceived to be a pipe. The man fell to the ground; when he regained consciousness, he realized they had cleaned him: taking his wallet.

The homeless man was later transported to St Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment.
