Man beaten with pipe during robbery

A 63-year-old man is recovering after police say he was beaten with a pipe during a robbery.

The victim, Bruce Sizemore, was found with a head injury in the front yard of his Owsley County home.

Police say around 4 a.m. Monday, Sizemore went outside his home to find four men stealing things from his yard.

Police say when Sizemore confronted the men, one of them hit him in the head with a pipe, knocking him unconscious.

An evangelist from a nearby church, who regularly checks up on Sizemore, later found him in the front yard and called for help.

Police say Sizemore was robbed for scrap metal.

So far, police have not made any arrests.

Sizemore is now at UK Hospital, where he's listed in fair condition.
