Elderly man beaten and robbed inside Rockville home, police say

Montgomery County Police are investigating the alleged attack of an elderly man inside of a home along Arctic Avenue in Rockville.

Satpal Singh’s son tells FOX 5 he found his father badly injured Monday afternoon.

“The door was unlocked,” said Mandeep Narula. “I see him lying in a pool of blood.”  

He says Singh’s wallet was stolen potentially along with other items.

Singh had apparently been working with some contractors on the home he owns and rents out.

The 79-year-old is a Sikh-American and the group United Sikhs is calling for a federal investigation but Montgomery County police say they don’t have any indication the motivation was hate.
