A 56-year-old man in Jamaica awoke to his roommates harassing him because they said he had his hand on his penis inside his shorts as he slept.
The harassment soon escalated into a beating.
The victim had been asleep inside of his room at 6:30 am inside the Grove Road community in Kingston when the confrontation began.
He told authorities that he ran from the room and tried to hide but was found and beaten on the head with a stick and lost consciousness, the Jamaica Observer reports.
When he woke up, he was inside of a police station.
The three roommates have all be charged. Randy Livingston, 54, and Wayne Richards, 19 have been charged with unlawful wounding. Janil Barette, 25, has been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.
They have all pleaded not guilty and return to court on 16 November.
