101-year-old Georgia man robbed in home

SAVANNAH, Ga. — A 101-year-old Georgia man has been robbed of his wallet for the second time in three months, and police are seeking the public's help in their investigation.

The latest incident occurred during a burglary at Edward Vaughn's Savannah home early Sunday.

Authorities tell the Savannah Morning News that officers responded to Vaughn's home around 2:45 a.m.

Vaughn told police that someone entered his bedroom while he was sleeping and demanded money. Police say the intruder took his wallet and left. Vaughn was not injured in the burglary incident, but did suffer minor abrasions in the earlier theft in August in which a man attacked him as he walked to his porch after getting off a bus.

Police are seeking the public's help in their investigation. Both thefts remain unsolved.
