68-year-old Man Beaten in Robbery Attempt


DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police are looking for a man who beat a 68-year-old man during a robbery attempt in Dover.

It happened about 7 p.m. Tuesday on North Old Mill Road. Troopers say the victim was getting out of his parked car when the suspect tried to get into the car and then confronted him.

Police say the man grabbed a bag of soft drink bottles from the trunk of his car and swung it at the suspect. Officers say the suspect knocked the man to the ground and punched him several times in the face.

Troopers say the suspect tried to take the man's wallet, but could not get to it and ran away.

The victim was injured, but refused medical treatment.
