LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a 67-year-old man was the victim of a robber -- and the encounter left him in the hospital with multiple injuries.
According to an arrest report, the incident took place at a residence on Madelon Court, near S. 35th St., shortly after 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23.
Louisville Metro Police say 35-year-old Thomas M. Robinson, III grabbed a 67-year-old man as he opened the back door of his own home. According to the arrest report, the two began to fight, and Robinson told the victim he was going to kill him.
The man -- who lived alone -- had a gun tucked into the front of his waistband for protection, and according to police, Robinson assaulted him in an attempt to get the gun.
Police say Robinson fled the scene, tossing the victim's wallet into an alley behind the man's residence when he saw the police.
After a brief pursuit, police say they captured Robinson in the 600 block of S. 34th St. He was arrested and charged with robbery, burglary and fleeing and evading police.
The elderly victim was taken to University Hospital with multiple injuries, according to police. A representative of the hospital who was contacted Monday morning said the hospital currently does not have any patients with that man's name.
