HURRICANE — Police are investigating the beating and robbery of a 29-year-old man.

About 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, a man who had recently befriended a woman went to the area of 100 West and 100 South to meet the woman and give her money because she needed help.

Instead, he was approached by two men, robbed and beaten, according to Hurricane police spokeswoman Nancy Perkins. The man was treated at Dixie Regional Medical Center for injuries to his head and upper body.

Anyone with information on the case can call Hurricane police at 435-635-7911 or email
