A York City man was jumped by a group of teenage males Saturday afternoon in what could have been a botched robbery attempt, police said.

Joel Wilson, 33, of North State Street, said he was walking home from the store and was in the first block of North State Street about 4:45 p.m. when one of the teenagers approached him, asking for the time, York City Police said.

The teen punched Wilson in the eye, and a second teen hit him on the back of the head, knocking him to the ground, police said.

Police said it's possible the teens intended to rob Wilson but became spooked and fled
