Robbing the elderly
A good-for-nothing punk robbed an old lady on her front steps on Avenue P on May 23.
The 72-year-old victim told officers she was walking up to her house near E. Ninth Street at 1:30 pm when the man offered to help her carry her groceries up the stairs. However, he then pulled a knife on her and demanded her purse, according to the report. She started screaming, and the man fled on foot, police said.
Police said the suspect was wearing a red shirt at the time of the incident.
