4100 block of 31st Street: At about 12:30 am officers responded for the report of an attempted citizen armed robbery.

The victim said that he had just pulled into his driveway and was getting out of his vehicle when he saw three black males exiting a vehicle directly across the street. The victim began walking towards the back of the house when one of the males walked across his lawn, approached him and demanded his money. The victim and his assailant began tussling during which the suspect struck him with a butt of a handgun. At this point the victim began yelling for help and the three males ran to the vehicle and fled down 31st street toward Queens Chapel Road. The victim suffered minor injuries to the left side of his face and to his neck but refused medical attention. He told the officers that nothing was taken from his person or vehicle, and, that because his glasses were knocked off during the scuffle he could not give a detailed description of the suspects or their vehicle. Multiple canvasses for the suspects and their vehicle were conducted throughout the area with negative results. PGPD robbery detectives were notified of the incident and will be conducting a follow-up investigation.
