The Orange County Register describes an incident where a man apparently suffered a broken leg while defending himself against two robbers who took his wallet. Police investigating the assault say the man was assaulted after he walked out of a store at 100 S. New Hope around 10:20 p.m. and two robbery suspects confronted him, demanding money.
Witnesses said that one assailant asked the victim for his money. When the victim told him he only had a few dollars, one of the suspects forcibly took the man’s billfold. When the victim attempted to push the assailant away, the assailant struck him with a metal object. A Santa Ana police officer said that after the blow, the victim took the metal object away from the attacker. The suspects fled from the scene on bicycles. The victim received treatment at a nearby hospital. At the time of this report, the hospital had not confirmed that the leg was actually broken.
The victim will probably have to pay thousands of dollars out of his own pocket for medical treatment for his injuries, even though he suffered these injuries through no fault of his own.
