A trio in Florida has been arrested for beating up and robbing a man as well as forcing him to dance in a dress, say cops.
The man, who has not been named was reportedly beaten and robbed, cut with a blade and made to wear a dress and dance by the criminals, according to the police in Florida.
He had reportedly been walking on North 3rd Street in the community of Immokalee, in Collier County, in the south-eastern US state of Florida, when he was kidnapped by the three suspects, who pulled up in an SUV.
He was then taken to the home of one of the suspects, where he allegedly was made to strip and put on a dress. The trio also made him dance, it is alleged, and threatened his life. One of the suspects allegedly cut his face with a knife.
The suspects then allegedly took him to Glades County and proceeded to beat him up more but he managed to flee and hide in a church before calling the police. He reportedly identified two of the suspects in a lineup.
The police have arrested three suspects, who have been named as Betsy Ann DeJesus, 37, Blanca Mejia-Medina, 46, and Noah Navarro, 39.
