The police caught a man who robbed a disabled elderly woman at the end of November 2023.
“According to the facts established so far, a man noticed a disabled elderly woman in front of a grocery store in Pilsen, who was leaving the store with the help of a walker, on the handle of which she had a purse hanging. The male suspect followed the woman for almost an hour before she reached the front door of the block of flats where she lived. He then took advantage of the situation when the victim was unlocking the door and stole her purse,” said Michaela Raindlová, police spokesperson.
A 25-year-old man from Pilsen then fled the scene. In her bag, the elderly woman had, among other things, a new doll for her granddaughter and a payment card. “The suspect later used the payment card to make several unauthorized payments. He also used the card to make unauthorized withdrawals. However, he did not succeed. The victim caused damage in the amount of 3 thousand crowns,” the police spokeswoman added
Thanks to the operative activity and the local and personal knowledge of the Pilsen police officers, the young man was found and convicted. If found guilty, he faces up to two years in prison.
