HUDSON — Detectives are still looking for the armed suspect who attacked an elderly Hudson man in his home on Friday before stealing his truck and fleeing the scene.

The attack happened at about 5:40 p.m. on Friday and sent a man in his 90s to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

According to the Sheriff's office, a white male, who was wearing a mask and armed with an unspecified weapon, broke into the elderly man's home in the 1600 block of Duda Road, attacked him, and then demanded the keys to his pickup truck.

The suspect, whom detectives said may be in his 20s, then sped off in his victim's four-door 2010 Nissan Frontier.

The Sheriff's Office has yet to locate the suspect or the truck, which has a hitch on the back, Florida license tag Z11EIC, and a front license plate that reads "Frank."

Anyone who spots the truck or has information about the attack is asked to call the Pasco Sheriff's Crime Tips line at 1-800-706-2488.
