    A Hartford man was assaulted and mugged Saturday night near 256 Mathers Street, police said.

    The man was walking on Mathers Street around 9 p.m. when two suspects approached him from behind. One hit the victim in the face, knocking him to the ground.

    The suspects searched the man's pockets, took his wallet and fled. The victim received minor injuries and was taken to St. Francis Hospital.

    Both suspects are still on the run. One suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, about six feet tall and 280 pounds. Police said he has black dreadlocks and was last seen wearing red workout clothes.

    There is no information on the other suspect. Police are still investigating.
