A 77-year-old man is recovering after a "gruesome, violent assault" that left him in critical condition early yesterday, police said.
The man who allegedly assaulted him was being sought by police last night.
About 12:30 a.m., police found the victim inside an apartment on Butler Street near 7th in Hunting Park, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
He had severe injuries to his head and face, including deep cuts around his mouth and eyes. Emergency-medical personnel took him to Temple University Hospital, where he remained last night in critical but stable condition.
