Be careful if you go fishing along the Rappahannock River, especially alone.
A Locust Grove man was attacked by four masked men in an attempted robbery Tuesday afternoon along the riverbank, off fall Hill Avenue in Fredericksburg. One man apparently put him in a headlock while another punched him and demanded money. When the 20 year old victim fought back, the men ran away.
Fredericksburg Police were not able to get a description on any of them but are looking for information on anyone that saw what happened, just after 4:30 p.m.
