A frightening confrontation led to an assault and attempted mugging Monday morning.

The victim tells police he was walking down East Platte in Colorado Springs around 1 a.m. when a car pulled up beside him. The people inside asked the victim for money; when the victim refused, three men got out of the car, shoved him against a wall and hit him in the face.
