The man was robbed just before noon on April 3 as he walked through a drugstore parking lot on the 1100 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South, police said. The robber pushed the man to the ground and took his property before pedaling off on a red BMX bike.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where doctors discovered his broken bones.

Police are searching for a black man in his 30s or 40s, about 6 feet 3 inches tall and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and shorts with black shoes; he was carrying a black backpack.
