WHITE OAK, OH (FOX 19) -

An 87-year-old White Oak man was brutally attacked and robbed in a parking lot near his work. 

James Hayes Sr. said he was attacked with his own cane before being robbed of his car and wallet. Hayes has worked at LaRosa's in Corryville for the last 20 years, but when he showed up to work on Friday to take deliveries, he was attacked in the parking lot behind the building. 

"I didn't think about him taking the car," Hayes said. 

He said he was ambushed from behind an electrical transformer box. 

"When I got out to get my stuff...from the car...that's we he came out and ran over, punched me, knocked me down, took my cane, beat me with my cane, turned me over, got my wallet out of my back pocket, taken my car and drove off," recalls Hayes. 

Hayes said during the attack, the suspect remained quiet. He described the attacker as a black male in his late 20's, 5'9" and 190 pounds wearing a black hoody. 

Hayes drives a white 2014 Hyundai Accent Hatchback with a New York Jets decal on the left side underneath the rear window. On the right shows his support for the Ohio State Highway Patrol. 

Hayes said he is hoping the Cincinnati police are able to point out the suspect from security cameras that were pointed towards the parking lot.
