Man is beaten, robbed on walk in cemetery

June 20, 1995

A Brooklyn Park man was punched and robbed as he walked home after work through a cemetery Friday afternoon, county police said.

Richard Wright Jr., 25, left his job at the Ritchie Car Wash about 5:20 p.m. and cut through the Cedar Hill Cemetery in the 5800 block of Ritchie Highway. He was counting his money when a man behind him shouted, "Hey you!"

When Mr. Wright turned around, the man punched him in the mouth and a second man snatched an undisclosed amount of money from the victim's hand. Both men then ran south into some woods that border the cemetery, police said.
