Pre-dawn jogger jumped by muggers

A 66-year-old man says that he was jumped by three muggers before dawn Wednesday while out for his regular early morning walk.

The victim says that he was on Main Street at around 4:30 a.m. when he noticed the suspects following him in a car.

The three criminals got out of the car to confront the man near Chestnut Street, where they tackled him and rifled through his pockets. A local business owner saw the attack and scared the suspects off.

The victim was not injured in the attack and nothing was stolen.
