ARCADIA, Wis. (WEAU) -- Police say a man was attacked while walking his dog Tuesday afternoon.

The Arcadia Police Department says a man was walking his dog on a dead end road a little before 5 pm, when two men pulled up to him in a dark purple mini-van and asked for directions.

They say the two men then jumped out of the van and attacked him -- demanding money and credit cards.

They say a black handgun was displayed during the attack.

The department says they stole the man's money and drove away. If you have any information, you're asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at 608-323-3359.
