SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Police Monday arrested a suspect they say beat a 72-year-old man with a crowbar during a carjacking.

Police say Daniel Dubois, 33, was arrested for the incident.

According to police, the incident happened on the 5000 block of Kesling Street in Clairemont Mesa East around 9:47 a.m. Monday.

Police say the 72-year-old drove up to his home only to find a man trying to break into his garage with a crowbar.

When the man tried to confront the suspect, police say the suspect attacked the 72-year-old with the crowbar before driving away with his Toyota Sienna.

Police say the victim suffered major head injuries in the attack.

The incident happened less than a week after an 87-year-old man was beaten by three men who broke into his Clairemont home.

The victim in that attack says he was working on a ceiling fan with the door open when the suspects stormed in.
