Anne Arundel County homicide detectives are investigating the beating of an unidentified man who was hospitalized in critical condition with life-threatening injuries yesterday.

Police said that about 4:50 a.m. Tuesday, a man flagged down police on routine patrol in the Pioneer City area near Fort Meade and said he had been beaten and robbed after leaving a friend's house.

He added that as he left the house, he saw a man on the ground.

The man led police to the victim, who was unresponsive, police said. He had suffered apparent trauma to the upper body, and was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

The robbery victim told police that at 4:20 a.m., he went to the 1600 block of Meade Village Circle to visit a friend and that, as he left, he was forced to the ground by two men with handguns.

He said the gunmen assaulted and robbed him. After they left, he told police, he went to flag down officers.

Police were working to identify the beating victim and notify his relatives.

Police asked anyone with information to call the county's anonymous tip line at 410-923-4543.

A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered through Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCK-UP, where callers remain anonymous.
