A Kirkwood man returning home from work on the evening of Dec. 10 was beaten and robbed by two men, Atlanta Police said.

According to APD, the victim arrived at his home in the 300 block of Leland Terrace Northeast. He had just gotten out of his vehicle and was on his front porch when two men attacked him.

“(The victim) struggled with the subjects and was hit on the top of his head with a hard object several times,” the report says. “(According to the victim), his wife stated she heard the struggle from inside the location and ran out and noticed (the victim) on the ground, while noticing one subject running from the location that could only be identified in detail as black male, 5’5 – 5’7, skinny jeans, black hoodie with grey and blue sweater over the top.”

The suspects took a laptop in the bag the victim was carrying over his shoulder then ran south on Leland toward a dark colored 4-door sedan, then drove south toward Wisteria Way.

“(The victim) had visible injuries to the top of his head where he was struck by the subjects,” the report says.

Clarification: The police report contains conflicting information about the street address. People familiar with the incident have provided more specific information, and this story has been updated.
