A 91 year-old Pulaski County resident remains hospitalized after being severely beaten during a home invasion robbery last week. The victim was alone at his residence when several suspects entered the house and began stealing property. He was then assaulted by the suspects while attempting to stop the crime.

Pulaski County deputies were called to the scene after an acquaintance discovered the victim at his home shortly after the incident occurred. The injured man was then transported by ambulance to a hospital in Springfield, where he spent several days in the Intensive Care Unit. The victim’s condition is gradually improving, while remaining hospitalized.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is unable to release further details at this time, but is vigilantly investigating the matter. They are asking for anyone with information concerning this incident to contact their agency at 573-774-6196, or call the Tip Line at 573-774-7948.
