Two people allegedly were robbed earlier this week while walking down two Hagerstown alleys, according to a Hagerstown Police Department written release.

At 11 p.m. Sunday, a 27-year-old man allegedly was approached by five men as he was walking in an alley near the first block of Fairground Avenue, the release states. One of the men allegedly hit him in the back of the head with an unknown object and another man allegedly showed a handgun, the release states.

The group allegedly stole the man's money and ran, police said.

The victim was treated for a minor head wound at the hospital and was released, according to the release.

A few hours later, at about 3:15 a.m., an 18-year-old man was approached by two or three men who allegedly assaulted him and "stole his cell phone and money," police said.

The 18-year-old had been walking down an alley to the rear of the 200 block of South Potomac Street, the release states.
