ERIE, Pa. -- Police say they're looking for a young man who sneaked up on and attacked a 65-year-old man who was planting flowers on his mother's grave at Erie Cemetery.

Police say they haven't made an arrest in the attack, which happened about 1:15 a.m. Saturday.

Police aren't releasing the victim's name. They suspect the attacker may have planned to rob the man, but he ran away when the victim started yelling for help.

The victim was treated for a gash on the back of his head.

The cemetery's manager says this is the first time he can remember an attack like this.
