(KMOV) -- A man was assaulted in a MetroLink parking lot near Southwestern Illinois College.
The man told Belleville Police someone struck him from behind when he was buying a ticket. Once on the ground, the victim said four or five men demanded his money and then took his backpack. They drove away in a green Ford Explorer.
Metro said it has security patrols at that station, especially during peak travel times. Cameras at the MetroLink stop did not catch the attack on tape.
