LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - Lunchtime October 1 at Posados Restaurant in Lindale turned out to be a bad place to be for one elderly man.

He was approached by three men asking directions who then forced him into their white mid-sized SUV. The elderly man put up a fight. When people came to his aid, two white males pushed the man out of the vehicle and sped off without the third man. All this according to David Craft of Lindale P.D.

"Witnesses say they left west-bound down I-20," said Craft. "The Black Male wearing a white Sherwin-Williams t-shirt ran into the woods to the north of Posados, went across 69 and into Lowes, came out at lumber, and went into Wal-Mart in Lawn and Garden. It appears he obtained a t-shirt - a black shirt - went into the restroom, changed shirts, came back out and exited Wal-Mart."

Police do not know where he went. They have leads from a few witnesses, but the man left nothing behind - including the white t-shirt. The other two took the elderly man's cell-phone, and got away with his cane. But, he only sustained minor injuries. Police say he was lucky it was not worse.

Possible charges against the perpetrators include Aggravated Robbery, Kidnapping and Injury to the Elderly. If you know anything about this case, please contact the Lindale Police Department.
