A woman with a cane was robbed of her purse on Monday afternoon (5/24) in the 400 block of NE 85th Street. She was walking to the store when a man of unknown race came up from behind her and tugged at the purse until it gave way. The thief then took the purse and got away in a red car parked nearby.
That’s from the official police report. We think it’s the same crime commented on earlier by Mexi-Pickle in our post on stun-gun attacks:
These same attackers decided to come into the Maple Leaf neighborhood this last Monday the 24th. They attacked a senior citizen and stole her purse right by Javasti. Luckily no stun gun was used.
