EAST POINT, Ga. (AP) — Police in suburban Atlanta say they're searching for three people accused of assaulting an 80-year-old man in an attempted carjacking.
East Point police say the man was in his car when he was assaulted in his driveway on Sept. 14 by at least two men and a woman.
Officials say the woman driving the car blocked the man in his driveway and one of the suspects threw a brick through one of the man's windows.
Police say the men pistol whipped the victim, who suffered broken bones in his face and cuts to both of his arms. The victim told WXIA-TV (http://on.11alive.com/1b3UC3N) that the suspects stole his wallet and ran off.
Last month, an 88-year-old World War II veteran was beaten to death while he sat in his car in Spokane, Wash. Two teenagers face murder charges in the killing.
