Baltimore County police were searching yesterday for two suspects after a 71-year-old man was beaten with his own cane this week in the Stoneleigh area. The attack, which occurred about 11 p.m. Wednesday, has shaken some Towson-area community leaders, in part because several neighbors apparently heard a commotion but did not call 911. The man, who lives in the area, was walking in the 7100 block of Bristol Road, when he noticed a red, four-door sedan pass him and drop someone off, said Cpl. Mike Hill, a county police spokesman.
