A 43-year-old homeless man was arrested after an elderly man was beaten outside the washroom at a Downtown Eastside pub.

The 81-year-old victim was helped by other patrons at the Savoy Pub Monday afternoon after a man hit him repeatedly with a glass beer mug over the head.

The suspect was held until police arrived. The victim was taken to hospital, where doctors stitched up three large gashes on his head.

Jose Manuel Rivas Penate made a court appearance yesterday to face charges of assault with a weapon.
