Two teens were arrested early Tuesday morning after police say they assaulted a man and stole his firewood.

On Monday around 4 p.m., a man was parked outside Galley Discount Liquor at 4311 Galley Road selling firewood when he was approached by several males in a red Ford Aerostar with white horizontal stripes.

The driver, a Hispanic male, stayed in the car. Five black males got out of the vehicle and approached the victim. They asked how sales were going and he told them he hadn't made any money. The suspects then demanded money from the man.

The victim told police that the suspects made him nervous so he started backing away from them toward the liquor store. The suspects surrounded him and one of them hit him in the face.

Another suspect grabbed some firewood and took off in the truck.

Then around 2:15 a.m., an officer on patrol saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspect car in the 4200 block of Morley Drive. The officer stopped the car and arrested two occupants, and further arrests are anticipated.

Police arrested 18-year-old Steven Enlow, and a juvenile male.

    But then again. I don't know the story. Probably didn't need to assault anyone though. Should have time for it.

    yeah, too bad he wasn't carrying. If everyone in that situation was carrying, it would have escalated into a gun fight with the poor salesman dying!

    Why try to rob someone who just told you they don't have money, beat him, and then steal some firewood? Do any of these people ever actually realize just how completely ridiculous, pointless, and outright stupid -- aside from being illegal -- their actions are?

    get these scum bags off the streets. most are school drop outs with no intentions of being anything. there should be a law that if you drop out of school that you can't get a driver's license. it's to bad that we can't bring back the ole days. this incident would've been taken care of without any police involved! we old folks knew how to take care of this.
