Woman placed in headlock and robbed

  • Written by Bob Rakow

  A man awoke an elderly woman and forced her out of bed Jan. 2 before stealing her purse, police said.
  The incident took place at 7:54 p.m. in the 9300 block of Tulley Ave., police said.
  The man told the 85-year-old victim, “I want your purse, where’s your money?” He then placed the woman in a headlock, forced her out of the bed and down the stairs into the living room, according to reports.

  Police later brought a man in for questioning who also lives on Tulley Avenue
