Friday the 13th started out unlucky for a Fresno man who was carjacked at gunpoint and beaten by his companions in central Fresno, police say.
About 6:30 a.m., officers sped to a report of the crime at Thesta and Peralta avenues, where the victim reported his Honda Accord had been taken by armed suspects.
But police at the scene said it appeared the victim was robbed by the people with whom he had been partying after he told his friends the party was over.
No, it's not, they reportedly told him.
One of his three companions pulled a gun, struck him and ordered him out of the car. The man called police for help.
The victim, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol, was treated at the scene by emergency workers.
