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.
