An Orange man was beaten and robbed in his home by a man he called an acquaintance, Thursday afternoon. The man called police to his home in the 400 block of Morrell to report the crime.

The man told police that he was sitting at his home, when the suspect, who was described as a short, bald, black man, kicked in the door. The suspect told the victim that he would beat him up if he didn’t give him money.

When the victim didn’t put up a fight, the robber slapped him, then reached into the victim’s pants pocket and took $500 from him, and then left the home.

The man was said to be wearing Dickie’s shorts, black shoes and had a black shirt hanging over his shoulder when the robbery occurred.
