Clues sought to find thug who beat man, 77, in city last month


Hagerstown City Police are still looking for clues in a March 7 attempted robbery in which a 77-year-old man was hit with a baseball bat in his home on Madison Avenue.

Detective Chris Kayser said Friday that Riley Curtis Reeder spent several days in the hospital and received more than 50 stitches for his wounds but has since recovered.

Police said at the time that two men entered Reeder's unlocked door about 1:35 a.m. and demanded money. When Reeder said he didn't have any money, one of the men began hitting him in the head, police said.

Reeder's son, who was upstairs, chased the men through the back door. They were last seen heading north in the alley behind the house, Kayser said.

Both men were described as black males in their early to mid 20s, between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall and had medium builds. Both were wearing baggy blue jeans and light brown boots, possibly Timberland brand. One man wore a gray knit hat; the other wore a baseball hat and a dark coat.

Anyone with information may call Kayser at 301-790-3700, extension 238.
