Teen Arrested in Attack on 80-Year-Old Man

Posted March 16, 2007

— A teenager wanted in connection with the beating and robbery of an elderly Henderson man was arrested Friday, authorities said.

Robert Brodie, 17, of 416 Harriett St. in Henderson, is charged with two counts of common-law robbery and one count of assault inflicting serious bodily injury.

U.S. marshals arrested Brodie in Henderson Friday afternoon.

On Feb. 27, Herman Clark, 80, was attacked and robbed by three teens outside the Styl-ees Beauty Salon in Henderson. Clark's hip was broken in two places because of the beating, police said.

Henderson police arrested Tamil Robinson, 16, and Reuben Cooper, 18, earlier this week in connection with the assault.

    I must apologize for offending anyone with my prior comment. Instead of offering my opinion, rather, I'd invite you (the offended) to tour your local prison or junvenile center, you'll see similar crud with your own eyes.

    TO CARMELDELIGHT73--- { young black male getting dumber }... thats not it at all, because you got every race acting out whether their black, white, hispanic, etc... People today who are out there doing the devils work, need to punished to the fullest... I hope that these young men, learn and understand that taking something that does not belong to you and hurting someone in the process, will carry a punishment that will break their asses.... so that the next time some other idiot goes out to commit a crime, hopefully they wont do it at all... im just glad that this couple did not die behind their hard earn living...
