NEW BEDFORD — A 43-year-old city man suffered minor injuries when he was struck by an unknown object early Monday during a robbery in the area of 17 Roosevelt St. in the South End, police said.
The victim told police he was walking to his vehicle between 1:15 and 1:25 a.m. when he was approached by three men who asked for his cellphone, police said.
