NYPD looking for robbery suspect targeting elderly women

Police in the Bronx are searching for a man they believe robbed five senior women in the last two weeks. In each robbery, the suspect followed the women to their homes and attacked them.

The latest robbery took place on Wednesday around 2:20 p.m. in Tremont. The men followed an 80-year-old woman into her building and offered to help her with her groceries. The suspect later asked for a dollar as a reward and, when the victim said she did not have money, he tried to take her pocketbook.

Other attacks were reported in Norwood. [ABC News]
