AKRON -- The search is on for two suspects who allegedly attacked a man late Monday night as he was walking near the intersection of East South Street and Sherman Street.

Akron Police say it was around 11 p.m. when the 53-year-old victim was approached by two males from behind. The suspects allegedly demanded money before punching the man in the face, knocking him to the ground and kicking him in the abdomen several times.

Both suspects fled the scene after reportedly stealing about $1 in change from the man's pockets.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Descriptions of the suspects are very vague.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Akron Police.
