Officers were dispatched to the address to investigate reports of a strong-arm robbery.

Police said upon arrival, police met with the 25-year-old Marlton man, who stated that he was beaten and robbed by three black males on Pierson Street.

Orange Police said the victim stated that he was recording a video shoot for the three black males when they assaulted and robbed him for his credit cards and camera equipment.
