MANATEE -- A 24-year-old man was robbed Monday night outside his home by four masked men with guns, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
The victim went outside his home in the 3000 block of 17th Street East at 11:30 p.m. to smoke in his front yard, according to a release. A four-door Sedan pulled up and four masked men got out, each carrying a gun.
The four men told the victim to, "Give it up," and began to beat him, deputies said. One broke a beer bottle over his head, the victim told deputies.
The victim managed to get $200 out of his pocket and give it to them, along with two rings and a necklace he was wearing, according to a release.
The four then got back into their vehicle and drove off in an unknown direction.
