An Oak Park man was struck on the right side of his head and robbed in the 300 block of South Ridgeland Avenue at 11:55 p.m. on Aug. 6.

The victim was walking southbound when he was approached by two men in their late teens or early 20s.

The offenders demanded money, and when the victim complied they struck him and then fled northbound on Ridgeland.

The offenders were described as black men, both thin, one about 5-foot-8 and the other about 6-foot-1, and wearing a gray and white hooded sweatshirt and a black hooded sweatshirt, respectively.
