Robert E. Stegman, 39, of the 21300 block of West Liberty Road was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was treated for his injuries.

The men punched and kicked Stegman then took the go-kart and drove away, police said. Stegman walked to a friend's home in the 1000 block of Jackson St., gathered a few other friends, and they looked for the thieves, police said.
The men flagged down a police officer, who searched unsuccessfully for Stegman's attackers. Two hours later, Stegman's brother called 911 because Stegman was cold and sweating, police said.
Annapolis paramedics said the man was in shock, and they had him flown by MedEvac helicopter to Shock Trauma.
