Stockton police are searching for a man accused of severely beating his elderly mother Saturday afternoon.
Randy Francis, 55, is considered armed and dangerous, Stockton police said. He may be driving a 2004 Chevy Silverado pickup truck with California license plate 7N29539.
Police said Francis went to his mother's apartment complex in the 7300 block of North Pacific Avenue around 2:15 p.m. and asked to be let into her apartment. A man with the complex led Francis to his mother's unit. Police said as they entered the unit, Francis attacked the man, tied him up and took the man's truck keys.
Francis then went to his 86-year-old mother's room and "violently attacked" her, police said. He then drove away from the scene in the man's truck.
Police said Francis' mother suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital.
