ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A man was rushed to the hospital after he was allegedly beaten and robbed in Soulard.

Police said a 68-year-old man was walking to his car on Emmet before 1 a.m. on Sunday when a man approached him, demanding his wallet.

The victim refused and ran. The suspect ran after him and hit him over the head with an object. He then stole credit cards and cash.

“It is surprising. People usually watch out for neighbors and that is something I wouldn’t necessarily think to hear about,” said a neighborhood resident.

Police said the victim was in stable condition when he was taken to the hospital.
