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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
