One of the men displayed a knife. Karnes struggled with the men, who got his wallet and fled the area. Karnes was not injured in the incident.
Dietz says officers and a K-9 searched the area for the men, but turned up nothing.
The men were described as in their early 20’s, between 140 to 160 pounds, 5’8 to 6’0, and wearing dark hooded sweatshirts.
