Default Woman, 88 attacked walking home after Easter church service in Ithaca, NY by heavy-set sow


88-year-old woman robbed walking home after Easter church service in Ithaca
Published 10:58 a.m. ET April 17, 2017

Police say an 88-year-old woman was robbed as she was walking home from church at about 12:10 p.m. Easter Sunday.

The victim was walking on the 200 block of South Geneva Street when a woman grabbed her purse from behind, Ithaca police officers said. The victim struggled with her attacker and then the attacker pushed her to the ground.

The strap to the victim's purse broke, the attacker took the purse and then fled from the scene inside a small gray or white sedan or SUV, authorities said.

After the incident occurred, an officer assisted the victim and told other officers to look for a black heavy-set female, possibly in her 30s, who was last seen wearing light-colored clothing, an Ithaca Police Department press release stated.

"The woman had minor injuries that were treated at the scene," said Sgt. Derek Necheporek.

Officers responded to the area, but were unable to find the vehicle, the release stated. Police also said a black male was driving the vehicle, but have no further description of the driver.
