Robber of Springfield Twp. man being sought by police

Lucas County sheriff's detectives are looking for information about a man who burst into a Springfield Township apartment in the 7400 block of Nightingale Tuesday, hit an elderly man several times on the head with a rock, and stole his wallet.

The 78-year-old victim said the intruder knocked on his front door about 6:40 p.m., then pushed his way inside when the door was opened.

The suspect, described as black and in his 20s, wore a hooded Michigan sweatshirt. He was seen fleeing in a four-door car, possibly a Dodge, from the mid 1990s that was dark-colored but not black.

Anyone with information is asked to leave a message for Detective Cathy Stooksbury with the Crime Stopper program at 255-1111.
