SAVANNAH -- Metro Police are soliciting help from the public in identifying the man who broke into the residence of a 101-year-old man and took his wallet Sunday.

It was the second time in three months that Edward Vaughn of the 800 block of East 36th Street has lost his wallet in a theft.

Police were called to his house for a burglary in progress at 2:42 a.m. and found the rear door unlocked. Vaughn told Central Precinct patrol officers that someone entered his bedroom while he was sleeping and demanded money. The intruder took his wallet and left. Vaughn was not injured.

On Aug. 7, Vaughn left a bus returning him from Bethel A.M.E. Church just before 2 p.m. and a black man about 5-7 in his early 20s with a light complexion followed him onto the porch of his house.

The younger man grabbed Vaughn and threw him to the ground, took his wallet containing $61 and his identification cards.

Vaughn received minor abrasions to his face and left hand in that robbery and complained of pain to the right side of his body. He was treated at the scene by Emergency Medical Services but declined transport to a hospital until he had talked with police. He was driven to a hospital by a family member.

Who ever did this needs to be

Who ever did this needs to be shot......it was probably the same person who did this both times because he knows where Mr. Vaughn lives, and has probably targeted this elderly defenseless man. What bothers me most is, if this man has family he needs to be with his family or in a retirement home and not living alone at 101 years old.

That's why I truly believe

That's why I truly believe that robbers and burglars need time behind bars, not revolving doors or probation. They almost always repeat their crimes.

Is it some kind of contest going on to see who can be the sorriest person on earth? Every day there is a new challenge for the crown.

Scum bags need to be shot, and I'm not joking either. This is about as low down as can be.
