Elderly Man Beaten And Robbed

A 70-year-old man is recovering in a Windsor hospital after being beaten and robbed at his Blenheim home.

Investigators say officers were called to a Blenheim residence earlier this week for an assault complaint when they found the 70-year-old with facial injuries. He was taken to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance then transported to Hotel Dieu Hospital in Windsor.

Police say the elderly man was assaulted by a man known to him, who also stole the victim’s wallet.

A 46-year-old Sarnia man is facing charges of aggravated assault, forcible confinement and robbery.
