The victim told police he was walking down a street in the Leisure Estates Mobile Home Park, 523 Butternut Drive, about 2 p.m. that day when three men attacked him, knocked him to the ground, and held a knife to his throat while they took cash and other personal items from his pockets, said Sgt. Bob Ruster of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was not hospitalized for an injury to his face, Ruster said.

Police said the suspects include an Hispanic male of medium height and weight with a thin mustache; and two black men of medium height and weight, and clean-shaven. One man had a small scar on his forehead, Ruster said.
