ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police said a homeless man was lured into a car, beaten and robbed of his jacket and shoes.

Cano, who said he was drunk, got into the back seat of the light-colored Chevrolet Suburban with six occupants.

He said the driver stopped after going only a block. He told police the occupants pulled him from the vehicle, beat him and stole his leather jacket, shoes and cash.

He was left by the side of the road. Cano called police but officers could not find the attackers.
