Suspects Sought in Robbery of Elderly Victim

Delaware County, OH – August 4, 2014

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to discover who robbed an 80-year-old woman as she existed her vehicle in her garage Saturday evening, Aug. 2, in Lewis Center.  

The woman and her husband had just returned from running a few errands. Sheriff’s deputies believe the couple was followed home.

The suspect entered the couple’s garage, strong-armed the elderly woman, and took her purse along with all of its contents. Fortunately the victim was not seriously injured.

Within the hour, the victim’s credit card was used several times in north Columbus by a female.

If you have any information, please call the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office at 740-833-2837. Thank you.
