Amarillo, Texas - Two people are recovering after being assaulted in a strong-arm robbery Sunday morning in Amarillo.

Police say two women and a man were standing outside the apartments at 1600 Dale around 6am, when three Hispanic men approached them.

One of those men then struck the male victim in the mouth, splitting his lip and knocking him down.

Another demanded the two women hand over their purses.... When they refused, one of the men hit one of the women on the side of the head.

The three men then ran away westbound on Dale.
