Elderly Man Nearly Beaten To Death In Brownsville

BROWNSVILLE (KDKA) — An elderly man is in critical condition after police say he was nearly beaten to death.

Police say the 75-year-old man was beaten by a much younger man around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Brownsville.

Witnesses say the suspect’s girlfriend would sometimes talk to the victim, and the attack may have been rooted in jealousy.

Police say they’re still investigating.

“We have some ideas but we still need to verify what the ideas are,” Brownsville Police Chief Stanley Jablonsky said of a potential motive.

Police say the suspect is in the Fayette County Jail on unrelated charges.

“Hopefully we will be filing charges if there are any charges to be filed soon,” Jablonsky said.
