NEW YORK - A 91-year-old used his cane to defend himself in an attack by a robber who was attacking him with his own cane.
The elderly man was sitting on a stoop when a man walked up to him and demanded cash.
The victim gave $4 to the man, but he demanded more cash. The robber, who walks with a limp, then attacked him in the head with his cane.
The victim defended himself with his own cane and the attacker walked to a bus stop at Avenue J and East 16 Street, where he boarded an eastbound B6 MTA bus.
The victim, who suffered head pain and a laceration above his eye, was later transported to Community Hospital in stable condition.
The NYPD released a video of the suspect in hopes that someone could identify him.
