According to a Cleveland police report, on Sept. 23 shortly before 1 a.m., a man reportedly punched another man in the face at 1365 W. 6th Street – an address that matches up to a parking lot across from the Starbucks.

The report said the suspect punched and kicked the man several times, causing the victim to become unconscious.

The suspect and an unknown woman jumped into an SUV and fled the scene, the report said.

The victim was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center where he was treated and released.
