SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
The search is on for two men who allegedly beat and robbed an elderly Shreveport man Monday evening.
Police say just before 9 p.m. they responded to a report of a robbery at a home in the 1800 block of Abbie Street. When they arrived, police made contact with an 80-year-old man who was suffering from a cut to his head. The victim said he was walking out his door to feed his pets when two men knocked him to the ground and beat him. The men then took the victim's wallet before running away.
The victim required several stitches for the cut on his head. He is expected to okay.
"It seems like they tried to prey on someone who wasn't going to give them much of a struggle," says Shreveport Cpl. Marcus Hines.
"For them to wait for him to come home, and rob him like that, it needs to be stopped," says Neighbor Willie Dallas.
Dallas lives just down the street from the elderly man, and says Tuesday morning his home was burglarized.
"We need to get together as a neighborhood and start watching out for each other," says Dallas.
