Robbers beat homeless man
to death with wooden plank

A 58-year-old homeless man was beaten with a wooden plank, robbed and left mortally wounded in the street of a South Dallas neighborhood this morning.

Officers found the victim lying in the street about 1:55 a.m. The victim, whose name was withheld until family members were notified, told police that two men walked up to him and began hitting him with the wooden plank.

When he fell to the ground, the assailants took $150 and ran away.

He died about five hours later at the hospital.
