Lower Southampton Police are currently investigating the strong armed robbery of an elderly woman in Trevose.
On Tuesday, Jan. 15 around 12:16 p.m., police received the report that a 92-year-old woman had just had her purse stolen off of her arm in front of Precision Cuts on the 500 block of Andrews Road and that the subject fled on foot.
A witness told officers that he saw a suspicious-looking person standing on the walkway directly in front of the stores in that area.
The actor was descibed as wearing a black or dark blue hoodie that was tightly covering his hair and a scruffy smaller beard. He was in his 20s, about 5'8" and had a thin build.
Bensalem Police reported to the scene with their canine unit and searched the area, but were not successful in finding the subject or the purse.
The management company of the buildings told police that the surveillance cameras in front of the store were not working at that time.
The total loss to the victim was $35.
