Detectives in Marion County said they are looking for three armed men who tried to rob an ice cream man at an Ocala park.

The attack happened Saturday afternoon as the ice cream truck was pulling up to Coehadjoe Park, on Northeast 35th Street.

The victim told detectives three men tried to pay for a pickled sausage with a counterfeit $20 bill.

When the ice cream man questioned him, he said they pulled out a gun. He tried to wrestle away the gun, but one of the men struck him in the eye.

Detectives said the men left in a faded blue, 1980s-model Cadillac. No other description of the suspects was immediately given.
