A man went to Iowa City police Tuesday after he was allegedly beaten up and robbed, a press release said.

Police said an adult male reported he had been walking in the area of Stevens Drive and Waterfront Drive between 5-6 p.m., heavily intoxicated, when three males approached him.

The alleged victim told police the three men, who came from the area of the homeless shelter, asked him for money before allegedly assaulting him and taking his wallet. The release said he sustained minor injury to his face as a result.

He said the two white males and one black male with part of his finger missing, all in their 20s, fled in an unknown direction.

Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspects.
