MNPD Working to Identify Robbers of Senior Citizens

From the Metro Nashville Police Department:
Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two women who appear to have followed at least three senior citizens home from shopping trips, pulled guns on them, and robbed them.

The first case occurred at 3:45 p.m. on October 29, when an 87-year-old woman was robbed of her purse while at the mailbox outside her West Nashville home. A woman walked up, asked for directions, pulled a pistol and demanded the victim’s purse.

The second case occurred at 4:20 p.m. on Oct. 31, when a 79-year-old woman was robbed of her purse while in the driveway of her Donelson home. Again, a woman walked up, asked for directions, pulled a gun and demanded the victim’s purse and wallet.

The third case occurred at 6:50 p.m. on November 3, when a 63-year-old was robbed of her purse while in the driveway of her West Nashville home. A woman walked up while the victim was unloading groceries and demanded her purse. The victim refused and the two struggled. The suspect hit the victim in the head with the pistol, got the purse and fled.

Following the robberies, the victims’ credit and debit cards were used at area businesses. Detectives have obtained very good surveillance photographs of the suspects. Both are black. One is approximately 5’5” tall, heavyset, and has shoulder length black hair (may wear a wig). The other is approximately 5’9” tall, thin, and has long black hair. Anyone recognizing the women is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (615) 74-CRIME or West Precinct Investigations at (615) 862-7385.
