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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
