HUNTINGTON, WV -

UPDATE:

West Virginia State Police in Huntington are looking for a man who fought his way into someone's home, assaulted the home owner, then left with his gun. 

An unidentified man approached a home on Eighth Street Road at 10 p.m. Thursday stating his car was broken down and he needed water for it. The homeowner turned to help the man and that's when the man grabbed 79-year-old Raymond Hall and demanded money. 

Mr. Hall told the intruder his wallet was in his bedroom. The two began to struggle and the intruder took a gun from Mr. Hall's drawer and hit him in the head with it. Mr. Hall tells 13News the intruder kept threatening to kill him. Told him to lie down for five minutes, that's when the intruder left. Mr. Hall tells us intruder had the gun, a wallet and about $35. 

Mr. Hall then went to his daughter's house just up the road and that's when police were notified. We asked Mr. Hall how he feels about opening his door to help someone again. 

"Well, I'll check it. I'll leave my light on and check out the window, you know, see who's there, get my gun and go to the door," Hall told us. 

State Police say they are still looking for this man. Anyone with information is asked to call the Huntington Detachment at 304-528-5555.
