An elderly Chickasaw man was robbed, beaten, and stabbed last week in his home and remains in the ICU at USA Hospital. According to Fox 10 News, 86 year old Carrol Jordan is expected to recover. Police are looking for three possible suspects in the robbery and stabbing.
Jordan’s life was saved when a neighbor came over to borrow some margarine. When neighbor Pam Cartwell knocked on the door, a stranger answered. Cartwell noticed Jordan lying on the floor and saw two other strangers in the house.
The thieves took off and escaped the house with Jordan’s 42 inch TV, but dropped it in the back yard. Cartwell called 911 and stayed with Jordan until help arrived, likely saving his life. The 86 year old was stabbed between 5 and 6 times.
