RCMP investigating violent robbery against an elderly man

The Battlefords RCMP is investigating a violent robbery against an elderly man in the town of Battleford.

The RCMP says the attempted robbery happened in the 33rd Street area of Battleford, shortly after 7PM on August 25.

A man is suspected to have walked up to the 80-year-old victim, armed with a knife, in an attempt to steal his truck. The older man fought off the suspect, who fled after the unsuccessful robbery.

The victim sustained some injuries, the RCMP says, including a broken hip and cuts on his arm. He is currently being treated in the hospital.

Police are searching for the suspect, who is described as a First Nations man in his early twenties with short black hair. He was wearing black shorts with a white stripe and a grey hoody.
