Oklahoma City Police say a 21-year-old woman sprayed bleach in the face of an 83-year-old man during an attempted robbery.
The man said around 4 p.m. on November 18, someone knocked on his door in the 7700 block of Brookside Drive. When he opened the door, he saw a young man and a young woman standing on his porch.
The victim said the two asked for money. He refused and began to pull his screen door closed. The victim said that's when the man grabbed the door and opened it.
The elderly victim said he couldn't let go of the door in time. He fell forward and hit his head on the door frame, fell to the ground and scraped his elbow on the concrete porch.
The man said he began to yell loudly for help, hoping to make a big enough scene to scare of the suspects and alert his neighbors.
The victim said as he was trying to get up, the female – identified by police as 21-year-old Nicole Carroll – sprayed him in the eyes with bleach. The two then ran away. The victim got up and called 911. He was not seriously injured.
When police arrived, they found a backpack one of the suspects had dropped. Inside, they found a cell phone that they traced back to Carroll. Police were able to locate Carroll and arrest her, but they have not found her alleged accomplice.
Carroll was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on a complaint of attempted robbery.
