As the man laid on the ground injured, one attacker removed his watch and stole $2,700 cash from his wallet, with the other aggressor advising the victim to remain on floor face down, authorities said.

The robbers then fled the scene and the victim refused medical attention after the attack, officials said.

The incident remains under investigation and no further information was immediately available.
