A jeweler in Chicago was abducted and robbed, then abandoned at a golf course in his underwear, ABC 7 reports.

The man, age 72, was beaten during the incident, police said.

He had just parked near his apartment in the suburban village of Niles when he was attacked by three masked men wielding baseball bats, authorities said. CBS Chicago reports that he was hit in the head and thrown into a van.

It is believed that he was specifically chosen as a target. He had earlier been showing jewelry at a bar in the city of Des Plaines, ABC 7 reports.

WGN-TV reports that the man owns a suburban jewelry store.

The attackers took jewelry from the man, along with clothing and the keys to his business and home.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
