Pasadena ice cream man attacked, robbed

PASADENA — An ice cream vendor was knocked unconscious and robbed of his cell phone Friday afternoon, police said.
The crime was reported about 3:40 p.m. at Maple Street and Chester Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Pete Hettema said.
The vendor, a 47-year-old Los Angeles man, was walking with his ice cream cart when he was struck in the head from behind, the lieutenant said. He awoke to find his cell phone missing and did not get a look at his attacker.
It wasn’t clear if a weapon was used in the attack, Hettema said, however the vendor was hospitalized for treatment of cuts to his head.
Though the vendor had cash in his pocket, police said, only his cell phone was taken.
