BREAKING NEWS Area woman followed, robbed in driveway

Monday, December 1, 2008

Investigators are asking the public for their help for any information about an afternoon robbery of a Brazil resident at their home around 2 p.m., Monday.

Officials at the Brazil City Police Department confirmed to The Brazil Times officers were investigating a report of an incident involving the theft of groceries and an elderly woman's purse from her vehicle in the area of the 600 block of South Alabama Street.

Captain Terry Harrison said the woman reported two men in a 4-door bronze-colored vehicle (make unknown) followed her home from a shopping trip and parked behind her car in the driveway located in the alley behind her home.

The man who got out of the vehicle and stole her groceries and purse attempted to cover his face with his coat but the victim did notice he had short brown hair.

Once the suspect got back inside the vehicle, the victim reported it went north in the alley.

No injuries were reported during the incident by authorities.

To report information about this crime, or any other, contact the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.
