Man Charged In Attacks On St. Paul Senior Citizens

Charges have been filed against a man suspected in two attacks on St. Paul senior citizens.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Charges have been filed against a man

suspected in two attacks on St. Paul senior citizens.

Police on Friday were still looking for 53-year-old Michael L.

Pye. Nationwide warrants have been issued for his arrest.

Authorities say he broke into one home this week and hit a

66-year-old man in the head with a 5-pound weight. The man suffered

a gash that needed eight stitches to close. The man says the

suspect had "crazy-looking eyes."

Prosecutors say Pye then hid in a nearby home where he tied up

an 84-year-old woman and her 3-year-old great-granddaughter with

shoelaces.

He allegedly fled in the woman's car with her credit card, ATM

card and jewelry.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press says he was charged Thursday with

burglary, kidnapping and aggravated robbery.
