Man claims to be robbed of everything but his underwear; flees to Wawa

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) -- A nearly naked man who entered a Newport News Wawa claims he had been drugged and robbed of everything but the underwear he had on.

Police were called to the convenience store in the 12000 block of Jefferson Avenue shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday. Officers found the 27-year-old Lanexa man disoriented and in distress. He told investigators he had been staying at a nearby hotel, which is where he claimed another man and a woman assaulted him and robbed him of his clothing, phone, and money.

The victim was able to flee, and ran from the hotel to the Wawa.  He was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries to his knees and a cut to his eyebrow.

Police say they have spoken with the individuals at the hotel about the incident, but there is no word on any charges at this time.

The incident remains under investigation.
