The Cliffview Pilot reports the unidentified 52-year-old was punched and pushed to the ground by Sassony Bryant, 31, who allegedly snuck up behind him on Eighth Avenue. Bryant followed the Old Bridge man into a store and demanded his cell phone.

Bryant was arrested on assault and attempted robbery. Bryant was treated at Roosevelt Hospital for facial and elbow injuries.
