Lorain man, 91, says intruders robbed him

LORAIN — A 91-year-old man told police he was robbed by two men who entered his apartment in the 4700 block of Oberlin Avenue around midnight Saturday.

The man said he answered a knock at his door and allowed in a man who said his car ran out of gas and he needed to use a phone, according to a police report. The resident said while the first man appeared to be using the phone, a second man entered the apartment, grabbed the resident in a bear hug and threw him to the ground.

The resident said the men stole about $100 from his wallet.
