It happened early Tuesday afternoon on Crapo Street as the man walked near Rivet Street. The 48-year-old told police that he was approached by two men, and one asked to bum a cigarette.

When he reached inside his jacket, he was hit on the head by something, and knocked unconscious. His wallet and the pack of cigarettes were taken from him. The two men were last seen on Rockland Street. One man is white, the other black, and both in their 20's. They were wearing dark, hooded sweatshirts.

Police are asking that anyone with information call Detective Scott Brown at 508-991-6300, ext 131.
