Man beaten and robbed in Pasadena

PASADENA — A group of young men beat and robbed another man early Sunday, police said.
The victim, a 37-year-old man, was walking about 2 a.m. at Orange Grove Boulevard and Worcester Avenue when a white sedan containing five to six attacker described only as black men in their 20s pulled up, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said. The group exited the car.
“They got out and accused him of being a rival gang member, which he’s not,” Clawson said.
The victim ran, chased by the group of young men, the lieutenant said.
When the fleeing victim tripped and fell, “the suspects began to punch and kick him several times,” he said. They then helped themselves to the items in the man’s pockets before fleeing in the white car they arrived in.
Police said the victim declined to be taken to a hospital.
