A Lyerly man was assaulted while trying to help a local motorist Tuesday, according to Summerville Police reports.
Brandon Bartlett, 30, stopped to offer assistance to a motorist.
“Mr. Bartlett stated that he saw a white Maxima with an Alabama tag off into the grass with the flashers on and he pulled behind them to see if they needed any help. Mr. Bartlett stated he got out of his vehicle and was walking toward the white Maxima when he heard a voice behind him. Mr. Barlett stated when he turned around someone had struck him in the head and he passed out,” Officer Matt Wilson reported.
Bartlett refused medical treatment.
When Barlett awoke, he discovered that someone stole his wallet with $1,000 inside it. The wallet also contained a debit card, two credit cards and other personal items.
