Elderly man pistol whipped by intruder
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- A Pensacola man says he was attacked and pistol-whipped by an intruder.
Escambia deputies say, a home on 57th Avenue was broken into Wednesday night.
74 year-old George Steele told deputies he was sleeping in his bedroom, when Barron Anderson came in through the back door.
Anderson grabbed Steele's handgun, which was loaded and under Steele's pillow.
Steele says Anderson pointed the gun at him and demanded his wallet.
When he didn't get it right away, Anderson hit Steele in the face with the gun, then ran off.
Anderson was later arrested at the Beacon Gas Station on Jackson Street.
