Philadelphia Police are investigating a home invasion in the city's Olney section where the victims were two elderly people.
Police say it happened at a home on the 5900 block of Fourth Street just before 2 p.m. Thursday.
The victims suffered cuts to their heads and were taken to the hospital.
According to police, the thief broke into the couple's home and hit them with a tape dispenser when they fought back.
The man demanded money and asked for car keys, police say. When he couldn't start the car, police say he took off.
The westbound lanes of the Atlantic City Expressway were closed for several hours on Sunday after a single vehicle accident sent several people to the hospital.
