Last updated on Monday, December 24, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indianapolis Metro Police are looking for the criminal who beat a man so severely - he’s lost the sight in his right eye.

Police say 29-year-old Michael Byfield used a monkey wrench on his landlord, 61 year old Robert Henderson. Henderson is an Indianapolis civic leader associated with groups that give scholarships to needy children.

Police say Byfield beat Henderson because Byfield had threatened to evict him for refusing to pay his rent.
