Craig Phelps tried to steal 86-year-old veteran Paul Browning’s wallet, according to an arrest report.
Browning was leaving Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati after visiting his wife of 65 years when Phelps allegedly demanded his wallet. When Browning refused to give up his wallet, police say Phelps punched him and knocked him onto the ground.
Browning’s injuries were severe enough that he, too, was admitted to the hospital, though he drove himself home first. His face is severely swollen, he received stitches in his mouth, and his left arm has been bandaged. Phelps stands charged with attempted robbery and possession of cocaine.
