NEW YORK (CBS/AP) – New York City police said an 81-year-old man and his wife were severely beaten during a robbery in the lobby of their apartment building.So, we have a couple of thugs who decide to beat up on an elderly couple. Nice. And for what???
Joseph and Linda Naimo of Staten Island had just closed up their store and had walked over to their apartment building next door when they were attacked Sunday night.
Police said Naimo’s 75-year-old wife suffered a broken nose, broken jaw and fractured skull. She was in stable but critical condition.
Naimo suffered cuts and bruises. He had celebrated his birthday earlier in the day. The couple’s 49-year-old son was also hurt in the attack, after suffering a gash above his left eye, which was also blackened from a blow by the thieves.
The robbers got away with Naimo’s wallet, which contained $18.$18. These low-life cowards beat the hell out of an 81 year old man and 75 year old woman for $18 measly dollars. If there is any justice in the world, these two will get a taste of their own medicine. In fact, I'd be more than happy to volunteer for the task.
