Police: Man Stripped, Beaten, Robbed On ‘First Date’

BUNNELL, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Shaun Williams thought he was going on a first date with a woman.

Instead of a date, he was stripped, beaten, and robbed.

Williams told police that the woman he was supposed to be on a date with arrived to pick him up with two other men. He added that she told him that the men were her brother and cousin and that she had to drop them off.

“The next thing I know I was left for dead on the side of the highway somewhere,” Williams told WESH-TV.

They drove Williams 30 miles from where he was picked up where they stripped and beat him in a rural area.

“They pistol-whipped me, hit me in the eye twice with a gun,” he added to the station. “When someone has a loaded gun to your head, has the trigger pulled back, you have no choice but to submit.”

After Williams gained consciousness he was able to flag down a trucker for help.

“I was embarrassed. I was stripped naked,” Williams told the station.

Williams may need surgery on his eye.

Police say the three thieves are still on the run.
