A 29-year-old Reynoldsburg man is accused of robbery after an incident that occurred about 9:45 a.m. April 24 at a business in the 3500 block of East Main Street, according the Whitehall Division of Police.

Another man identified as a victim at the scene was observed to have a severe laceration, which was treated at the scene by the Whitehall Division of Fire.

Police said the suspect pulled into the parking lot of the establishment and punched the victim in the face knocking him down, which was caught on surveillance cameras.

The victim fell behind another gas pump, which is not viewable by the cameras, reports said.
