2 Arrested in Elderly Beatings, Robberies

Posted:

Two men are arrested for the brutal beating and robbing of two elderly couples in the valley. Phoenix police arrested Lester Dunnings, 23, and Kevin Taubman, 50.

Police said Dunnings shaved his head after he saw a composite drawing of himself on TV.

The two are accused of breaking into homes in south Phoenix this week. They allegedly tied up and gagged the victims, brutally beat them and robbed them.

Three of the victims are in their 80s. One is 90. And two of them suffered heart attacks -- and the female victim remains in critical condition.

bob Mahoy's 83-year-old father-in-law is a Korean War veteran who watched helplessly as the suspects beat up his 81-year-old wife.

Police said they apprehended the suspects in the area of 28th Street and Mobile, after someone called in a tip.
