Guam - A scary situation took place in the northern village of Dededo, where a man thinking he was doing the right thing by giving some people a ride and ended up being severely beaten and now at the Guam Memorial Hospital. A random act of kindness turned violent early this morning in Dededo.

The Guam Police Department confirms that a man was choked by several suspects and beaten up before the suspects took his vehicle. The Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Section agents are investigating the case. According to police apparently, the man was sitting inside his black 2003 Honda Civic at 5:05am along Route 3 in the former FAA area in Dededo.

Police say the man was waiting for his mother to return after her morning walk. But before she returned to the vehicle, police say three men and a woman who were apparently walking along the stretch of roadway then approached the man. The group asked if he could give them a ride to a store located on Ysengsong Road, which the man agreed to. But it was during the trip that things went wrong.

The victim was instead asked to go to Chalan Palauan Street. The suspects told the man to pull the car over by a water station before one of the suspects then allegedly choked him from behind as the others beat and punched his face. What became a brutal attack eventually resulted in the man breaking free and escaping to a friends' home nearby.

Dededo Precinct officers received the injured person call from the Astumbo Fire Station at 7:20 this morning where the victim first reported his attack. The victim meanwhile is recovering and is in stable condition at the hospital.

No descriptions of the suspects were provided but authorities are asking the public to keep a look out for the victim's car. Anyone with information is urged to contact GPD's Criminal Investigations Section or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
