Man attacked by kids with water balloons, bottle before being fleeced of cash

A man was attacked with water balloons and a water bottle and robbed of his cash by five young rapscallions in the Sunnydale neighborhood on Tuesday, police said.

The 21-year-old victim was driving in the area of Sunnydale Avenue and Hahn Street when five boys threw water balloons at his car, police said.

The victim got out of his car to confront the rascals when one of them threw a water bottle at his head. The boys somehow pilfered cash from the victim and fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The victim was treated at the hospital for his injuries, which were not life threatening.

No arrests have been made.
