Police: Man hit with wrench in wallet robbery

PEABODY — Police say a man who was walking on Newbury Street on Monday afternoon was robbed by another man who jumped out of a vehicle, hit him with a wrench and stole his wallet.

The victim, a 32-year-old Danvers man, told police around 3 p.m. that he had been walking in the vicinity of 286 Newbury St. when a blue Toyota Scion pulled up and a man emerged from the back seat. That man struck the victim with the wrench on the right forearm and demanded his wallet, Sgt. Robert Waugh said.

The victim handed over the wallet — which reportedly contained $450 — and the car fled in the direction of Route 1 south.

The occupants of the car were described as two white men, one with brown hair and a Bruins hat, the other with blond hair. The victim said he didn’t know them, Waugh said.

The victim did not require medical treatment and was transported back to his residence by police after the incident.
