"The guy was one of the first who asked to see the phones”, Saitov said. “As soon as he had both phones in his hands, he started booking it”.
According to the report, Saitov grabbed the suspect’s arm in an effort to stop him, but he was able to break free. The suspect also reportedly struck Saitov in the face and head several times before running through the parking lot.
He chased the robber and was able to catch up to him, but as they began tussling Saitov said someone in a car drove up to them and said he'd shoot if he didn't let go of the suspect.
Saitov returned to his vehicle and was transported to Miami Valley Hospital with a head injury and without the phones -- but with the assailant's phone. The suspect left his cell phone in the victim’s car, the report stated.
The suspect is described as a black male, between the ages of 20 to 25-years-old, approximately 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds.
He was wearing a white tank top, gray pants, and Jordan gym shoes.
The incident remains under investigation.
