A 29-year-old Michigan man might have thought he was doing three others a favor when he gave them a ride on a freezing Tuesday night around 1:30 a.m.
Instead, he was left beaten-up, his wallet and shoes stolen. To make matters worse, while walking in just his socks to the Ypsilanti Police Department in the subzero temperatures to report the crime, he got frostbite.
Temperatures this week in the southeastern part of the state were reaching just below zero for lows and with the windchill. According to the National Weather Service's windchill chart, at temperatures like this it would take just between 10 to 30 minutes to get frostbite.

According to MLive, that the unnamed man had to walk about a mile to reach the station. The extent of the man's frostbite -- from mild to severe -- is unknown and it is not clear if he required medical attention for it.
It is also not known why the man decided to pick up the three others in the early morning hours in the first place.
On Wednesday, police identified the stolen 2013 Chevrolet with two males in their 20s inside.
“They had some of the victim’s property in the car,” Detective Sgt. Thomas Eberts told MLive.
While these two men are expected to be charged with carjacking, the police department is still working to identify the third suspect.
