LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Jury selection is scheduled to start on Monday for the man accused of breaking into an elderly couple's home, and beating the man inside with his own cane. In January, a Lubbock County Grand Jury indicted Jaffice Lee Harris III, 20 on felony charges of robbery and burglary.

Police say Harris broke into a home in the 3800 Block of 48th Street in November and beat a 74-year-old man with his own cane. Investigators later determined Harris lived only a few blocks away.  "He said give me the money, give me the money. That's the only words I heard him say. Give me the money, give me the money," victim Kenneth Forson said. 

Police arrested Harris across town, connected to an attempted purse snatching at the United Supermarket on 50th and Avenue Q. Harris remains in the Lubbock County Jail.
