Moffat was driving a delivery of $2612 of the racing association's money to a bank when a bandit stepped into his sedan and forced him to drive to Washington and Victoria avenue where two other men demanded the keys to a compartment where the money was stored. Then the first bandit forced him to drive to Hollywood Hills, where the robbers threw acid in Moffat's face and pepper into his eyes.
Moffat sits at a table with an ashtray, scars visible on his face while an unidentified person out of the camera's lens examines a notepad.
