WATERVILLE — A man was reportedly robbed out on the street early Saturday morning after withdrawing cash from an ATM and walking back to his Union Street apartment.

Police are investigating the case reported by a 58-year-old man who lives at 11 Union St., according to Deputy Chief Bill Bonney.

The man told police the robbery happened about 5:50 a.m. after he withdrew cash from a lower Main Street ATM and was walking down Union Street. Two men reportedly ran up to him, physically accosted him and stole an undisclosed amount of money before running from the scene, Bonney said. There were no other witnesses to the incident.

The victim also suffered minor bruises and abrasions from being pushed to the ground by the robbers, Bonney said, but he was not taken to the hospital.

The two attackers were described as white men between the ages of 20 and 30. One was described as having black hair and a mustache and the other as blonde, Bonney said.

Police asked that anyone with more information on the incident call Waterville Police at 680-4700 and ask for Detective Damon Lefferts, who is investigating the case.

Police have responded to 11 Union St. several times this year, including to a report of a man ingesting drugs, while the apartment building was also the location in August of an alleged hammer attack over a drug dispute.
