Police say a robber demanding drugs and money beat a New York man on the head with an icicle.
WBNG-TV in Binghamton says the crime occurred Wednesday afternoon in Windsor.
Two suspects came to 56-year-old Ken Birdsill's door. The man was also punched and had a knife held to his throat.
State police say the perpetrators got away with about $80 in cash and prescription pain medicine.
