Surveillance video may help Baltimore City police find the attacker who mugged a 70-year-old woman as she asked for help with a flat tire, says WBAL TV.
Footage from a CityWatch crime camera showed the robber wrestling the woman to the ground near South Stricker Street between West Baltimore and Hollins streets around 5:15 a.m. Saturday. The suspect then took the woman’s cell phone and fled.
"What's even sadder is when you are accosted by these criminals or thugs, you give them what they want, and they still get physical. The woman could have been -- I'm sure she's somebody's grandmother," neighbor Lemuel Murray told the TV station.
Police said the suspected mugger is black, about 6 feet tall, and he was wearing a black jacket and khaki pants. Investigators believe he may work or have family or friends in the area.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police at 410-396-2504.
