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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
