The 34-year-old got into the vehicle on Sunday (Feb. 23) at about 7:55 p.m., thinking it was a ride share he had ordered.

The man and woman inside took him to the 1200 block of Rev. John Raphael Jr. Way and pulled him out of the car. The man kicked him in the stomach twice, then stole his cellphone and wallet before fleeing the scene.
