Orange man beaten, car stolen
A Friday report from the Orange Police Department states that a 29-year-old man was beaten near Park Avenue and Mill Street, and the victim left lying on the sidewalk as three men took off in the man's vehicle.
According to the report, Orange police officer C.D. Cowart found the victim lying on the sidewalk, bloody and bruised with visible wounds on his face and forehead. The victim told Cowart a man waved him over for a ride and when he stopped, three men pulled him out of the car, beat him up and drove away.
The stolen auto, a white 2008 Dodge Avenger, was reportedly recovered later the same day. No arrests were made in the theft or assault.
