Crook Robs Blind Woman in Little Tokyo, Caught on Video.wmv

Los Angeles. Los Angeles detectives have released video of a shocking, daylight robbery in Little Tokyo, in which a man chokes an elderly blind woman to steal her gold chain and jade pendant. “This is shocking to watch, especially when you consider this woman is legally blind,” said Lt.

Detectives are combing through other video to see if the suspect’s image is captured later. “Street robberies are uncommon in the Little Tokyo area, so this one really stands out,” Lt. Vernon said. “And this suspect really needs to go to jail.” The mugger was wearing a white shirt, a small back pack, and a baseball cap turned backwards. Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Central …
