Oklahoma City police are looking for two suspects accused of robbing a woman, who was walking with the assistance of a walker.  

According to police, the 61-year-old woman lives at Grace Living Center. On Wednesday, May 25, the victim said she was walking back from Whitaker’s Grocery Store when she noticed two juvenile suspects following her. The victim said she told the two to stop following her. That’s when they tried to grab her purse that was latched onto her walker.

During the struggle, the suspects grabbed the victim’s arm, threw her to the curb and ran off with her purse. The victim was transported to Deaconess Hospital, suffering from some bruising.

Officers learned that the suspects had been inside a Dollar General store in the area just before robbery. They obtained surveillance footage of the two from the store and released it on Wednesday, June 1, hoping someone will recognize the suspects and help police take them into custody.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at (405)-235-7300.
