PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- The Putnam County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men who they say beat and robbed a 78-year-old man.

Investigators say the incident happened Sunday at Phillip Henderson's home on Sherman Drive Circle.

Deputies say the suspects, Michael Crum, 18, and Adam Hale, 22, repeatedly hit Henderson with a stick or pipe of some type. 

Henderson suffered severe lacerations, abrasions and contusions on his face and arms from the beating.

Deputies say after the beating the men took $20 from Henderson and the keys to his 1997 Lincoln.

The men fled in the Lincoln, but it was recovered three miles from the scene.

Both Hale and Crum face attempted murder, robbery and grand theft charges.

Call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS.  You will remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 for each man if your tip leads to an arrest.

Got some good news after crum was caught in Orange Park he was transported back to Putnam county jail where he was beaten and then transported to hospital. He is now back at the jail in a segregated area. We still need to get his cousin so lets keep getting the word out.

These punks should be taken out and beat to death, they are not fit to be called human.
