San Luis Obispo resident Gareth Morgan, 26, was walking in Mission Plaza around 10 p.m. on Monday when two suspects, described by witnesses as “transient,” attacked him, San Luis Obispo police say. Bystanders yelled at the suspects, who then fled with Morgan’s backpack and wallet.
Morgan suffered cuts to his face and a possible concussion. He received treatment at Sierra Vista Hospital.
A female with a pit bull and a second “shaggy” dog also fled with the suspects.
Witnesses described the suspects as white males in their mid 20s. One was wearing a blue crew sweatshirt, and the other was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt. Witnesses also described the female as “transient.”
