COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus police are searching for two suspects after a man was hit with a baseball bat and robbed on 11th Avenue Saturday night at 7 o'clock.

The victim tells police a black woman that he knows as "Tonya" and an older black man hit him in the head with a baseball bat and stole his $400 gold chain and iPod. The victim then walked to a nearby gas station and called police from a pay phone.

He suffered a large knot on his head from being hit with the bat, but refused to be taken to the Medical Center for treatment.
