NC Wanted: Police continue searching for three men who robbed 86-year-old man

Posted September 5, 2015

An 86-year-old man was beaten and robbed last year by three men who have yet to be identified.

George Webb said heard a noise at his back door. When he opened the door three armed men barged inside his home.

“I was pushed down on the floor and against the cabinet and said, ‘What do you want? I haven’t got anything,’” Webb said. “He looked me close in the face. We were probably five inches apart at the most and he said, ‘We want money.’”

Webb said the men were armed with blue tire irons and that he was held down by one assailant, while the other two rummaged through his apartment.

“One of them would occasionally brush my hair with the tire iron as to say, ‘We’re still here,’” Webb said.

The suspects took off with this wallet, according to Webb.

Webb suffered cuts on his right ear, and bruises on his face, neck and hands.

The crime outraged the Haymount community. They showed their support with a gift for Webb and his dog.

“The goodies they sent for me and the dog, I cannot imagine it,” Webb said.

With no arrests in the case, his family decided to move Webb out of state.

    Why wasn't a physical description provided??? The articles states a suspect was directly in his face, so go ahead with the description of them in case someone sees them. We're waiting...
