Man robbed, beaten after answering knock at door in south St. Louis

Posted: Updated:

A man said he was beaten and robbed when he answered a knock at the door at his apartment in south St. Louis.

65-year-old Bill Bennett said when he answered the door at his apartment in the Linden Garden Apartment Complex, the suspect shoved him and beat him.

“When I opened the door, he shoved me and I lost my balance and he shoved me again,” said Bennett. “He kicked me a couple of times and I went to roll over to see who he was so he kicked me a few more times. I rolled back over to get away from him.”

Bennett said he tried to get a look at his attacker.

“He started kicking me again, I figured I better roll back over and not look at him anymore,” Bennett said.

The suspect took Bennett's laptop and ran.

“I guess he just wanted to grab something quick,” Bennett said.

The apartment complex's security cameras caught the suspect and the landlord is hoping to turn the images over to police. Bennett said he will take extra precautions when he hears a knock at the door.
