The INQUISITR news reports:

A wheelchair-bound Korean War veteran was reportedly attacked by an intruder in his own home Saturday evening in Aurora, Colorado.

 Lee Pekish, 80, who lost his leg in combat, had just returned from walking his pug Toby when he was bludgeoned from behind. Pekish said that the next thing he remembered was waking up in a pool of blood with his dog and cat still at his side. Pekish reportedly enlisted in the service at age 18.

The thief stole about $300 from the apartment.

Pekish told the CBS News Denver affiliate that “Blood is everywhere and I really didn’t know what the heck had happened to me. It took me most of the night to figure out what had happened.”
