A 77-year-old was left badly injured after raiders broke into his house and beat him, demanding he hand over his car keys.
The man was asleep at home when masked attackers broke in, beating him until his brain started to bleed.
The attack happened in Birmingham in the middle of the night on Thursday, say West Midlands Police.
Burglars raided the man’s house before waking him, dragging him from bed and punching and kicking him multiple times.
They left empty handed.
The man suffered serious injuries including a cut lip, broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder. He remains in hospital in a serious condition after suffering a bleed on the brain, which medical professionals believe could be as a result of the assault, reports BirminghamLive.
The attempted robbery happened between 1.20am and 1.45am on Moor Green Lane, Birmingham.
