Man attacked, robbed by group in Cameron Park

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A man was attacked and robbed by a large group of people Thursday night in Cameron Park.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, a male victim said he was meeting up with someone he had met online at Meetme.com.

Police say the pair met, walked to the store to buy cigarettes and as they walked to the park, a group of 15 to 20 people jumped the victim and attacked him.

The victim was hit on the side and did not get a good look at the attacker. They took $85 in cash and a driver's license.

According to police, the report does not say whether or not the person who he had met online was involved in the attack, but that was the only reason he gave for why he was at the park.
