Mounties say the victim reported he was walking in the area and was attacked from behind, and his wallet and a watch were stolen.

He was not seriously injured.

Surveillance from a home in the area shows two people getting out of a dark-couloured, newer model Chevrolet pickup and following the victim out the line of sight of the surveillance.
