(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington man reported he was punched in the mouth and then threatened with a knife Friday night, but waited three days before reporting the crime.

According to police the incident happened around 8:30 p.m. Friday at Seminary Square Park.

The man says he and three other men were sitting under a tree, trying to stay out of the rain when a 6-foot-2-inch white slim-built man, who was in his mid-20's, approached him and was upset.

The man asked the victim about a moped or bicycle, which the victim said he didn't know anything about. That is when the man allegedly punched the victim in the mouth causing a tooth to fall out and bloodying his lip.

The victim told police, he "shook off the punch" and was approaching the man when he pulled a knife and said "want some."

The man then got into a black two-door car and left.

Police then asked the victim why he didn't report the crime right away and he replied, he wanted some time to think about how he was going to deal with the situation - either file a report, or take matters into his own hands.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Bloomington Police.
