CORPUS CHRISTI - An 87-year-old man had a frightening encounter with a robber who threatened him with a knife.
Police say the victim was inside his home on Eisenhower Street when a stranger showed up in his kitchen.
The robber put a knife to the man's neck and demanded his gold crucifix necklace. The victim handed over the necklace and two gold rings before the attacker fled.
The man was so scared he could only tell police the robber was a Hispanic man around 30 years old.
