Steamboat Springs Police are investigating an apparent robbery that occurred in Ski Time Square early Saturday morning.
A 25-year-old Steamboat Springs man was robbed of $90 and suffered minor injuries, but he has no idea what happened, Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae said.
The man remembers leaving work at a restaurant in the 1800 block of Ski Time Square between 1 and 2 a.m. Saturday and walking down the metal stairs next to the Torian Plum Condominiums, Rae said.
The man does not know whether he fell, was pushed or attacked, but the man said friends found him lying in a pool of blood near stairs that go to the Sheraton Steamboat Resort. The man does not remember his friends finding him. He also does not remember his friends helping him get cleaned up at a Ski Time Square bar. The man and his friends rode home in a taxi, which is the first thing the man remembered since the robbery, police said. The man asked his friends the next day what happened the previous night before he got in the taxi.
The man reported that his tip money was missing, and he suffered a concussion from the incident.
Police have no suspects, and finding out what happened could be difficult because the victim does not remember what happened, Rae said.
Rae said robberies in Steam--boat are rare, especially robberies involving injuries. He remembered two robberies in the past year, and the suspects in both cases were caught.
Anyone with information about the robbery can call police at 879-4344.
