His attorney, Nathan Soleimani revealed that he was parked as closely as possible to the bank, as he knew he would withdraw the large amount of money.
However, he was grabbed and beaten as soon as he got to his car before he was able to get in.
He desperately did all he could to hang on to the bag for as long as he could, as he knew it was everything he had, but the mugger beat him and knocked him to the ground before he ran away carrying the bag.
Cornejo told a news reporter that no one tried to help him when the incident took place, Cornejo was left with multiple bruises and his arm had to be placed in a sling.
The FBI are currently investegating the matter with the help of several surveillance camera from the area.
