The three jumped him just blocks from his home. "They broke his glasses in his face and his dentures in his mouth," she said. "They knocked his hearing aid out and his face is really swollen." The three took his wallet, which contained money, his Social Security card, his state ID, driver's license and credit cards. But he was able to hold onto the lottery tickets, she said.
