A 91-year-old woman was robbed of $60,000 by a gunman as she returned home after withdrawing the money from the bank.
The elderly woman reported that around 9:30 am on Monday, she went to Republic Bank, at Cipero Street, San Fernando and withdrew the cash.
She placed the bills in a brown bag which she then put in her purse.
When she arrived at her San Fernando home in her car around 10:30 am, she was approached by a man who opened the door and dragged her out.
As she screamed for help, the suspect snatched her purse with the money, several cards and a Samsung A10 cell phone. He then ran off.
Police officers responded and found her handbag on the side of the road near her home with the money missing. Investigations are continuing.
