OVERLAND, Mo. (KMOV.com) – At least two suspects are being sought by police after a disabled man was attacked and carjacked while sitting outside a home in Overland overnight.

The victim, described as being in his 60s, was sitting in his vehicle and talking on a cell phone in the 8500 block of Midland Boulevard when two suspects approached him around midnight. The victim's son, Justin Paige, says his father lives with his grandmother, who has Alzheimer's Disease. He also said his father is 63, has tumors on his spine and uses a wheelchair and motorized scooter to get around.

Paige said one of the suspects placed a gun inside the car and fired a shot, which did not hit the victim. Then, the suspects pulled the victim out of the car and searched him for a wallet, which was inside his home at the time. The suspects then pistol-whipped the man and took off with his cell phone and car, described as a silver 2013 Ford Escape.

The victim crawled back to his home to seek help. When emergency crews arrived, the man was treated at the scene but refused to be transported to the hospital, according to his son.

No other details have been released.
