Woman robbed, injured in Takoma Park

By Ruben Casataneda

An elderly woman remains hospitalized with broken bones Friday after someone assaulted and robbed her outside a Takoma Park supermarket earlier this week, Prince George's police said.

The woman, 84, had pulled into the parking lot of the Shoppers Food Warehouse in the 6800 block of New Hampshire Avenue about noon Wednesday, said Cpl. Erica Johnson, a police spokeswoman. As she got out her vehicle, an attacker pushed her from behind and stole a tote bag.

The victim did not get a look at the robber, and police do not have a description, Johnson said.

Johnson said anyone with information about the attack is urged to call District I detectives at 301- 699-2601

Appalling. There is a special place in hell for the person who victimized this poor woman. This guy deserves vigilante justice. I hope she recovers and can resume life, but at 84, it is not likely she will be the same.

Attacking 84 yr old women? What kind of creep ARE you? I hope this person is caught before they can harm another innocent elderly person. JERK!
