WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a 51-year-old man accused of attacking his father’s live-in caretaker with a golf club and cane in Wichita.

According to police Lt. James Espinoza, a 49-year-old woman was transported by private vehicle to Wesley Medical Center early Wednesday with several injuries to her head and face. She is in serious condition.

Authorities say the woman told police the suspect attacked her when she would not give him his 89-year-old father’s benefits card. She says the suspect is occasionally at the house the she and his father share.

Espinoza said the victim told officers the suspect wanted to take money from the card to purchase narcotics.
