A man with a gun robbed two elderly women near a Highwood restaurant last Saturday, officials said.
A male black, 6-foot-2, wearing a dark hat and dark jacket, approached two elderly women, who are 83 and 85 years old, while they were walking back to their car near a restaurant in downtown Highwood last Saturday.
The suspect pulled a gun on the women and grabbed one of the women’s purse before fleeing the scene.
This was the second robbery in less than three weeks in Highwood, the Patch reported. On December 28, Highwood police responded to a call of a woman who was robbed of her purse by two suspects. No weapons were displayed during that robbery.
No additional details have been released about either robbery.
