Senior Citizens Robbed in Metro Area

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) – Police in two Georgia counties are searching for a 45-year-old man they say targeted senior women and robbed them in store parking lots.

Sandy Springs police report the suspect is accused of attacking an 88-year-old woman as she left a CVS Pharmacy on Powers Ferry Road in January.

Authorities say they believe the same man stole a pocketbook from a 69-year-old woman as she loaded groceries into the trunk of her car outside a Costco store at Cumberland Mall in late December.

An arrest warrant states the man tried to snatch that woman’s pocketbook, but she wouldn’t let go, so he pulled her back to his truck and began driving. Police say he dragged the woman 60 feet before she lost her grip and fell to the pavement.
