BRADENTON, FL. – A Manatee County man is robbed, beaten and forced to remove his clothing on a busy Bradenton road.

It happened Wednesday around 9:30pm on the 2600 block of Cortez Rd West, Bradenton.

43-year-old Ramiro Morales was in a car with 3 acquaintances, when one of them pulled out a knife and told him to give up his clothes and money or they would cut him.

Morales gave them all his clothes and his money, and then they pull over in the 5000 block of 26th street west. The males then beat up Morales and kick him out of the car completely naked.

Someone saw Morales walking nude down 26th street and called authorities.

He was taken to Manatee Memorial to be treated for pain in his rib, chest area.

The suspects are described as 2 white, tall, skinny males and a white female.
