THUG:  86 Year Old WWII Vet Viciously Beaten Outside Hospital Where He Visited Sick Wife

This guy needs to be put under the prison:

An 86-year-old World War II veteran was recovering Tuesday after being attacked by a mugger outside a southwest Ohio hospital where he was visiting his ailing wife, authorities said.

Police arrested 30-year-old Craig Phelps on charges of robbery and other counts including that he had a needle for heroin use. Phelps was being held Tuesday in Hamilton County Jail on $25,000 bond.

Police said Phelps tried to steal 86-year-old Paul Browning’s wallet outside Good Samaritan Hospital Sunday.

Look at this poor guy’s face:


Now, as Paul Harvey said, here’s the rest of the story:

Browning's son, Marvin Browning, said he got jumped just after leaving the hospital to go to his car. 'After he beat him down to the ground and tried to take his wallet, my dad let him know he wasn't going to get his wallet. Then he reached down and helped lift him up and told him he was sorry and that he thought he was somebody else,' Marvin Browning told the station WLWT. Fearing that Phelps might come back for him, the brutally beaten veteran then got into his car and drove himself home.

Mr Browning’s family later brought him back to the hospital for treatment.

That is one tough old man.
