Police are looking for a subject who battered an 80 year old female subject in broad daylight on a sunny Sunday afternoon after he asked her for money and she didn’t immediately comply with his demand. The incident took place at the 400 block of N 2nd in Springfield, between Madison and Carpenter, on October 16th. There’s a very good surveillance photo of the coward who punched the lady several times in the face before he took her purse and left her injured with no remorse or concern for her well-being. The victim has recovered from her injuries and the purse was found nearby, now it’s time to find this heartless and gutless criminal and lock him up.
The surveillance photo of the suspect can be seen here and on the Crime Stopper Facebook page. If you can identify him, call Crime Stoppers at 788-8427 or leave a tip using the links to the right. If your information leads to the arrest of this criminal, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward. We want your information, and we want this criminal behind bars.
