Bradenton, Florida - The Manatee County Sheriff's Office says a man was beaten and robbed by several people, including a person who called himself Santa Claus.

Investigators say 51-year-old Brian Bundscho met a woman who called herself Candy at a bar. The two left the bar and returned to Bundscho's trailer in Bradenton for the night.

The next day, Candy introduced Bundscho to a man who went by the name Santa Claus.  Santa Claus brought two men with him, and the three proceeded to beat Bundscho until he passed out. 

The four suspects took Bundscho's wallet and proceeded to use his debit card several times.

Bundscho had a black eye, but refused medical assistance.

Authorities did not release a detailed description of the suspects, and do not know the suspects' real names.
