CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- New details are being released about a violent robbery at an ATM in Charleston.

Police say they have found the car stolen from an elderly man who was the victim of an attempted robbery and beating last week.

Monday afternoon, the car was found on Madison Street.

The two men shown in the pictures above are persons of interest in the case, according to police.

The elderly man was using an ATM on Virginia Street when the pair allegedly came up and tried to use his card. It didn't work, so they took him to another ATM -- which also didn't work.

At that point, the men allegedly beat him and stole his car.

Police say they need the community's help to crack this case.

The victim had to go to the hospital for injuries from the attack, but he is expected to recover.
