Someone passed along a Facebook post about a robbery that occurred this morning at approximately 10:30 am on 51st Road between 66th Street and 65th Place. It was confirmed by Det. Bell, 104th Community Affairs.
Apparently the female was leaving her home when two male Hispanics tried to grab her purse. When she refused to relinquish it they dragged her and sprayed her with pepper spray. When her nephew came out to help her he was pepper sprayed too. They ran off without the purse.
Det. Bell could not provide any further information insofar as descriptions, etc.
Please be alert at all times!
