ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A brutal beating Wednesday night put an Anchorage man in intensive care.
Thursday three men were arraigned for assault and theft for a robbery that happened in a popular downtown park.
It's a dangerous situation that happened during peak hours at the Town Square Park, leaving some wondering how safe downtown really is.
Most people flip for Town Square Park, especially skateboarders.
"It's pretty good. No one really says anything, we just skate and no one bothers us," said Zack Bourdon.
And families step out to enjoy an icy evening.
For Arnold Gonzales and his son Averien, the park is a nice little place in Anchorage.
"It's pretty nice. We usually like it around this time of year, usually there's more snow," Gonzales said.
But Wednesday night, it was not so safe.
Police say three men: 26-year-old Terrel Brewer, 20-year-old Nicholas Kozorra and 20-year-old Brian Morissette beat and robbed a man so badly last night that the victim, Robert Estes, ended up in intensive care.
