    A man was robbed at knifepoint Saturday while emptying trash from his car at a Bristol car wash, the victim told police.

    Police responded to Bristol Hospital's emergency room July 12 at 3:33 p.m. to interview a 57-year-old man  who needed stitches to mend a three-inch cut to his arm.

    The victim told police that two white men attacked and robbed him while he was emptying garbage from his car in the dumpster at Mr. Bubbles Car Wash at 135 East Main Street in Bristol. One of his attackers had a knife, cutting his left forearm in the struggle, according to the man. The robbers stole the contents of his wallet, "personal papers" and "an undetermined amount of money," the victim told police.

    The man described his assailants as about 6 feet tall, but police have not identified suspects in the reported robbery at this time.

    The injury was likely caused by an "edged weapon or sharp object" and the man has since been released from the hospital, police said.
