83-year old man found beaten and gagged in home

An 83-year old man brutally beaten in his own home on New Year’s Eve in Philadelphia is in intensive care.

His son told CBS3 someone beat and gagged his father, Mauricio Gesmundo, during a home robbery.

“Duct-taped his legs, duct-taped his arms,” Geo Gesmundo said, “duct-taped his mouth and all around his head…Honestly, I’m still in disbelief.”

 His family found him after returning home from New Year’s Eve festivities. The intruder got away with $30,000 in cash. The family is hoping that anyone who saw any activity around the home contact police.

“I just don’t understand how anyone can do this to any human being, let alone an 83-year-old,” Gesmundo said.
