SLO man hit over the head and robbed while walking down the street

A San Luis Obispo man went to the emergency room early Friday morning after he said he was attacked while walking down the street.

Joshua David Brown, 32, was walking near the corner of California and Stafford streets around 3:30 a.m. when someone came up behind him and hit him over the head. He did not know who the person was, or what type of object he was hit with.

Brown said he was unconscious for awhile, but did not know exactly how long, before he came to and realized that he had also been robbed.

After walking to a nearby apartment complex, Brown was taken to the French Hospital emergency department by a roommate and treated for a half-inch cut to his left ear.

Anyone with information regarding this assault is urged to contact the San Luis Obispo Police Department.
