A 17-year-old boy told the Hilliard Division of Police he was assaulted and robbed at 7:32 p.m. Aug. 17 at Wallington Drive and Pegasus Court.

Officers responding to the call found a knife in the road and met with the boy, who told them he had planned to sell a pair of headphones to someone he had met via a social-media platform, said police spokeswoman Andrea Litchfield.

Two males threatened him with a knife and took the headphones without paying, Litchfield said.
