A 76-year-old man was assaulted and robbed by a man who broke into his home in the 7600 block of Spencer Road early Wednesday, county police reported.

Joseph Lawson was awakened by a sound at 4:30 a.m. He walked into the kitchen and found a man standing there, the police report said.

He then picked up the phone to call the police, but the man attacked him. After a brief struggle, Mr. Lawson ran into the bedroom.

His attacker knocked a dresser over on top of him and demanded money, police said. He then fled with a pair of pants that held Mr. Lawson's wallet.
