A Glen Burnie teen-ager was beaten early yesterday after he turned over his wallet to two men who threatened him, county police said.

Keith Joseph Smith Jr., 18, told police he was walking along Crain Highway shortly after 12:30 a.m. when two men approached him at Crain Highway and Mayo Road.

One of them asked Mr. Smith, "What's your beef?" then pushed him and asked, "What you got?" police said. Mr. Smith offered the men his wallet.

As the men took it, they knocked him to the ground, hit and kicked him and walked off, police said.

Mr. Smith told police his assailants may have driven south on Crain Highway in a dark green Jeep with a black top and a white, four-door Toyota Tercel. Police had no description of the men.

Mr. Smith had a lump on the back of his head, but was not hospitalized, police said.
