Only On 11: 86-year-old woman target of robbery in Point Place Kroger parking lot

POINT PLACE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The search continues for a man accused of robbing an 86-year-old woman in broad daylight. The victim speaks exclusively with WTOL. 

It happened Friday at the Kroger in Point Place while plenty of other cars and shoppers were around. But police say that didn’t stop them from targeting an 86-year-old woman.

That woman, Joan McNutt, is now without her license, medical cards, credit card and check book. She tells WTOL a man who parked near her got out of his car and tried to distract her before taking off with her purse.

"I got out of my car... this man got out of his car and told me I had a flat tire... I went back to look at it and he grabbed my purse,” she said.

She says she tried to fight back and reach inside his car to get it back, but he pushed her away, bruising her arm.

Police say they only have a vague description of the suspect, but know he was in an older black car with no front license plate.

If you have any information on who this man may be call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
