The suspect took his wallet with $200 inside, then punched him in the head before taking off.

He says the worst part of the attack was the verbal abuse.
"Honestly, I would have rather have had him taken my wallet and my phone and knocked me

hear from another human being that he thinks like that. This is 2013," Clark explained.
Cincinnati Police are still conducting interviews and
say the investigation into the aggravated robbery is ongoing. No suspects have been named.
