A Fall River man is being treated for a fractured jaw after being struck by a stick in an early morning mugging in Fall River.

A 40-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were walking down Dover Street near Snell Street when a man approached them and asked them for money. The pair said they had no money prompting the suspect to attempt to grab the woman's purse. The man then stepped in and the suspect hit him across the face with a stick fracturing his jaw.

The suspect is described as a white male standing 5'10 tall.

The victim was transported to Rhode Island Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
