SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are searching for two people who reportedly pulled a man out of his truck on the city’s North Side and beat him.

The man called 911 around 5:30 a.m. Thursday, at first saying he had been the victim of a carjacking.

Officers found him near a Wendy’s restaurant in the 9700 block of San Pedro Avenue, where he had gone for help.

Police said he told them that two men had pulled him from his pickup truck and hit him in the head, possibly taking off in his truck.

Officers searched the area and found his pickup two blocks away, still in the parking lot where the attack reportedly happened.

The two attackers had run away.

Police used their helicopter to search for them, but did not locate them.

Crime scene investigators took fingerprints from the truck and searched it for evidence.

Paramedics, meanwhile, checked out the victim and treated him at the scene.

Investigators did not know right away what may have prompted the attack.
