WACO -- A Waco man is assaulted and his backpack is stolen while trying to leave his gym.
It happened outside Gym X on West Waco Drive last night where a man told police two Hispanic males came up, hit him in the dead and demanded money.
They grabbed the victim's backpack before running off.
Witnesses reported seeing the two men acting suspicious right before the robbery, prompting police to stress the importance of calling authorities anytime there is suspicious behavior.
"Yea, it's everybody's responsibility because, think of it this way -- you know, how would you feel if, if a relative, somebody that's close to you was to become a victim of a crime and you could have done something to prevent it," said Officer Sofie Martinez with Waco Crime Stoppers.
The suspects are in their early twenties with medium builds, one wearing a red hoodie and the other wearing a black hoodie.
They were last seen running North of the Gym X parking lot.
