86-year-old man beaten, robbed in the middle of the night

One elderly man was hospitalized after he was brutally beaten and robbed in his home in the middle of the night.

"86-years-old. Two young guys beat him up like that? That's uncalled for."

Ethel Brown answered her door in a panic on Saturday morning when her cousin was frantically knocking - what she saw when she opened broke her heart.

"He knocked on my door, when I looked at him, I almost went dying. Because of the blood and stuff that was all over him. I thought he was going to die. I really did," Brown told WFXG.

Officers say that 86-year old Glover woke up around 3 o'clock Saturday morning when he noticed someone walking through his home. Glover told police when he sat up, he was immediately attacked by two men.

"They grabbed him, and one held him, and the other one beat him."

Glover's family says this isn't the first time he's been robbed.

"This was the third time, I think it's the third time, in less than a year, and nobody has been charged yet I don't believe. And its time for them to do something."

The Williston Police Department reached out to the community on their Facebook page, saying:

"This was a crime committed by COWARDS and it is SHAMEFUL… Our community's continued silence in these types of crimes gives these perpetrators more and more opportunities to do the same type thing again."

Glovers family hopes that the people responsible for this crime, are put behind bars.

"I think they need to be put behind jail and stay there until they die."

Glover's family says the suspect broke his nose and fractured a few bones in his face but he is out of the hospital. As of right now, police say they are still searching for the two suspects. If you have any information on this case, contact the Williston Police Department at (803)541-1078.
