ELK GROVE VILLAGE — A man, 55, was beaten and robbed in a popular northwest suburban forest preserve.

Authorities are investigating after the man was attacked Saturday around 7 a.m. in Busse Woods. The man said he was assaulted and robbed of some of his personal belongings.

A woman, Pamela Kowalczyk, said she arrived at the forest preserve for a morning jog. She was going to take the jog with some friends when they came upon the man. She said two people were already helping him.
