Police are investigating a robbery that occurred early Saturday in upper Puna.

A 67-year-old Volcano man told police that he was filling water containers at the county spigot station in Kurtistown at about 3 a.m. when he was confronted by a man. The suspect started a conversation with the victim and then allegedly assaulted him and took his wallet.

The man told police that he then observed another man rummaging through his vehicle.

Both suspects fled the scene on foot.

The victim was treated at Hilo Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
