DANSVILLE – A tough local retiree says he was attacked in his home on Saturday in an alleged robbery and assault by a complete stranger, who he says was after his wallet.
Paul Isaman, 90, says he was indulging a pitiful stranger who was complaining about his life when he invited him into his house on Park Avenue at about 8 p.m. Saturday. Eventually the man’s true motives came out, though, and he hit Isaman in the eye and took his wallet.
Isaman said his assailant ran immediately after taking the wallet. He sustained a nasty black eye and several facial bruises, but spoke easily about the incident and said he feels fine.
The Dansville Police Department is handling the investigation. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are encouraged to call Dansville Police at (585) 335-3385.
“I was lucky, and you have to look on the lucky side,” added Isaman. “That’s what you do in these situations. You survive, because you have to.”
