MEDFORD, Ore. — An elderly couple is hospitalized after an early morning break-in attempt on Hillcrest Road.
The suspect in the case is 25-year old Brenton Allen Morrow. Police say Morrow knocked on the door around 4 a.m., then forced his way in when the residents went to answer.
The owners are both in their 70’s. Morrow allegedly held them at knife point before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money. He tried escape police before crashing his car at the corner of Hillcrest and Sunrise.
Police say they suspect Morrow knew the victims. The couple is still in the hospital. 77-year-old husband is suffering from brain bleeding and had to have his ear surgically repaired.
