Billings Man Claims Assault
The Billings Gazette reports that a man said he was mugged while entering the Heights Walmart earlier this month, but police say there’s little evidence to back that story up.
On Feb. 2, the unidentified Billings man returned home and told his neighbor he had his wallet stolen by a pair of unknown assailants who then struck him outside the Walmart in the Heights. The neighbor called 911. However, no surveillance video or injuries corroborate his story. He said they asked him a question and one man hit him across the back of the head, causing him to fall to the ground. While he was on the ground, he claims one of the alleged muggers kicked him and stole his wallet, according to a subsequent press release from the Billings Police Department.
No further description of the suspects was provided.
