GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are investigating the attack of a man who was reading a book on a North Carolina college campus when two teens beat him and took his cell phone.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Friday that 24-year-old Robert Rhine broke his ankle while chasing the attackers after they punched him in the face.

Police say the man was reading on the Guilford College campus when the attack occurred Thursday afternoon. It started when the pair stopped to ask a question.

Investigators say Rhine chased them but fell and broke his ankle and had to crawl until he could get help from a passer-by.
