A man walking in the 600 block of Lee Avenue Thursday about 11:17 p.m. was attacked by what he described as a “very large man” who beat him and robbed him, said Waycross Police Capt. Tommy Cox.
The victim’s stolen wallet contained several cards and miscellaneous items including an undisclosed amount of money, said Cox.
