Sewickley police said someone reportedly attacked the youth and took his cash.
Sewickley police are investigating an assault and robbery that reportedly occurred Monday night on a public sidewalk in the borough.
Police Chief James Ersher said a 15-year-old told officers he was walking around 7:20 p.m. in the 400 block of Beaver Street, near the front of Bruegger’s Bagels, when someone punched him in the stomach, took cash from him and threw his wallet to the ground.
Ersher said the suspect then ran from the area.
The victim walked to Rite Aid before police were notified. He was taken by private vehicle to Heritage Valley Sewickley hospital for an evaluation, Ersher said.
The suspect is only described as a male between 18 and 20 wearing a green or gray hooded sweatshirt.
Ersher said police still have questions regarding the incident and are investigating.
