Associated Press Release
BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) -- A north Florida man says he needs surgery on his right eye after he was beaten and robbed during his first date with a woman he met at a convenience store.
A Flagler County Sheriff's report says 34-year-old Shaun Williams met the woman he knew as "Tree" two weeks ago. The couple met at the store on Friday and she followed Williams to his nearby home.
Williams told the Daytona Beach News-Journal the woman told him she needed to drop her brother and his friend off at their house before going to dinner.
Instead deputies say the men assaulted Williams, took his clothes and possessions and left him beside a road. He flagged down a truck driver who called 911. Williams was treated at a hospital.
Deputies are investigating.
