Two men, wearing gas masks, beat up and then robbed a man on Ossining's Secor Road, right next to the train station. The victim says one of the men put him in a choke hold while the other one punched him. The victim says he bit the man holding him, and even managed to hold on to his cell phone. The men ended up taking the victim's jacket and running towards the Ossining Train Station.
The victim called 911 and police began searching the area for the men. Police found one of the men, who had the victim's jacket and still had a gas mask on him.
