87-Year Old Woman Robbed At Richmond ATM Left With Broken Hip From Attack

RICHMOND (CBS SF) -- Police in Richmond are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect who earlier this month robbed an 87-year-old woman and pushed her to the ground, leaving her with a broken hip.

The robbery happened around 6:45 p.m. on July 5 when the victim was withdrawing money at an ATM at the Mechanics Bank at 4 W. Richmond Ave. in the Point Richmond area, police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.

As the victim took the cash from the machine, a woman approached and pushed her to the ground.

The suspect then grabbed the money from the victim and got into the front passenger seat of a waiting car that fled the area, Abetkov said.

Police have released surveillance photos of the woman, who is described as a black woman between 25 and 35 years old who is about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs roughly 145 pounds with black hair, according to police.

The department is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the suspect's arrest and conviction.

Anyone with information is asked to call Richmond police Detective Hector Ezparza at (510) 620-6673 or can leave an anonymous tip at (510) 232-TIPS (8477).
