Elderly women robbed at Luther Manor

Nov. 22, 2009

Two elderly women were knocked down and robbed by a purse snatcher at Luther Manor on Wednesday evening.

According to Wauwatosa police:

They had been out doing errands and were unlocking the door to the senior living facility, 4545 N. 92nd St., when a man came up behind them.

First he grabbed the purse of the 85-year-old resident, pulling her to the ground. Then he grabbed the purse of her friend, a 74-year-old Cudahy woman, and dragged her into the parking lot until she let go. The women suffered small abrasions and bruises.

Then the robber took off in a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero that appears to have been stolen from Milwaukee.
