A man was briefly hospitalized Monday night after Duluth police say he was beaten by six men  one of whom then stole his car.

Police say a 34-year-old man drove to a home on the 10 block of East 6th Street just after 9:20 p.m. Monday to pick up a friend. Six men then came out of the residence and confronted him at the car.

One suspect then allegedly pointed a handgun at him while five other men pulled him out of the vehicle and began punching him.

The suspect with the gun, whom police describe as a 17-year-old man, also hit the victim with the butt of the firearm.

Police say the 17-year-old suspect then took the victim's wallet and stole his car, driving east on 6th Street.

The unoccupied car was located about 3 hours later on the 200 block of East 4th St.

If anyone has information about this incident they are asked to call 911.
