A 76-year-old man was allegedly bashed in the head with a rock outside a house in north Corona on Monday morning, Sept. 4, and police say the suspect in the vicious attack is still at large.

The septuagenarian was in front of the detached house on 37th Drive, between 107th Street and 104th Street, at around 9:45 a.m. when the unidentified man approached the victim and hit the senior over the head with a rock, police said.

The suspect then fled the scene on foot to parts unknown, authorities said.

The senior suffered head injuries and was transported by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.
