A Harrisburg man was assaulted and robbed after he confronted three young men about setting off his car alarm Wednesday night, police said.

City police said the 63-year-old man was transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries he sustained in the attack in the area of South 26th and Duke streets just after 10 p.m.

The victim reported that he was in his South 25th Street home and heard the alarm. He said he looked outside and saw three males standing around his car, which had a door opened.

He said the trio left the area when he exited his house, and he followed and confronted them before they assaulted him and took his wallet and car keys, according to police.

Responding officers checked the man’s home and found his vehicle had been stolen.

The victim described his attackers as between 16 and 22 years old, and he said all were wearing hooded sweatshirts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3158.
