“I find it especially despicable for someone to not just rob an elderly person but to physically assault and injure them as well,” said Sheriff Lee Foster.  “He could have gotten her money and property without injuring her, but he chose to inflict additional injury and pain on the victim, particularly since he knew her and lived in the same community. I pray that the legal system will take the full extent of his actions into consideration as he is dealt with by the law.”

Bond was denied for Wise. Foster said at the time the incident occurred, Wise was on probation for a drug-related conviction.
