A Wilson man was hospitalized after being beaten and robbed by a younger man on Wednesday.

Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Pender and Green streets for a reported robbery at 7:16 p.m., according to a release from Sgt. Eric McInerny, public information officer for the Wilson Police Department. 

McInerny said the victim, Daniel Pena, 64, of Wilson, told police he had been assaulted and robbed.

Pena described the assailant as an unknown Black man about 25 years old with short hair and a goatee.

“Pena told police that the man struck him in the face several times with a closed fist,” McInerny said. “The suspect took Pena’s wallet containing an unknown amount of cash and a book bag.”

Pena was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville with possible internal injuries. He is in stable condition, according to McInerny. 

Police say the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255.
