Man mugged outside Bradenton home

MANATEE — A 28-year-old man was mugged early this morning while standing outside his residence in the 1100 block of 55th Avenue Drive East, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

About 2:10 a.m., the man was approached by three masked men, one of whom waved his fist at the victim and threatened to beat the victim if he did not hand over everything he had.

The victim surrendered his property, and the suspects — who were each described as standing about 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds — then fled, according to the sheriff's office.

The victim, who was not injured, waited 45 minutes to call 911, according to the sheriff's office.
