On Sunday afternoon, an elderly Vietnam Veteran was beaten unconscious and his 2000 Corvette stolen in Miami.
Police said 72-year-old Omar Sixto’s prized 2000 Corvette convertible with a tan top, was found in Miami Gardens, near Northwest 203rd Terrace and 43rd Avenue, on Tuesday.
Sixto was at a friend’s house in Miami fixing a windshield wiper on his Corvette in the driveway when he noticed a young man pacing back and forth across the street. “He hit me on the back of the head with something,” he said. “I don’t even know if it was a pistol.”
Sixto now has several stitches and facial fractures and doesn’t remember much of the beating after his Corvette was stolen.
