Cincinnati Police Looking For Suspects Who Beat Up A Grandpa On Christmas Eve

WALNUT HILLS, Ohio (WLWT) -  A Sharonville grandfather was out driving on Christmas Eve when he was ambushed in Walnut Hills.

Tom Evans, 87, pulled over to help someone pretending to need aid in the 800 block of Lincoln Avenue.

After he got out of the car to give a man a dollar, the suspect demanded his wallet. The man and another suspect pistol-whipped Evans and stole his car.

“His knuckles were bruised and cut. He had a cut on his ear. He was stitched or stapled in five different places,” the victim’s son, Danny Evans, said.

Evans got the phone call about his father while he was on vacation in Florida.

“My father, he would give you the shirt off his back, but you're not going to take nothing from him. Not without a fight,” Evans said.

The victim remains in the hospital with a severe brain injury, cuts and bruises.

“Those people took away his independence,” Evans said.

Danny Evans explained his father suffers from early dementia, and somehow walked to the MLK ramp before police found him. Police confirm a few anonymous calls came in reporting Evans in need of help.

“And then a couple more calls come in, and then a good Samaritan come along. My understanding is they were with him until the police arrived and I would absolutely like to thank that person,” Evans said.

The 87-year-old still needs physical therapy and assistance with daily living, so his family will be moving him to a nursing home when he is released from the hospital.

Evans' family still isn’t sure why or how their loved one ended up in the Walnut Hills neighborhood, but they still want the people responsible for the Christmas Eve attack brought to justice.

“This wasn't an accident, this was malicious violence against an elderly man who was actually trying to help somebody,” Evans said.

The suspects never did get away with Evans' wallet.

A minimum of $3,000 reward is being offered by the family for anyone who comes forward with information that leads to a conviction.

If you have information that can help police, contact Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.

Police are still also looking for Evans' car, a 2003 white Toyota Avalon, license plate FMN-6678.
