Newark Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A 73-year-old woman was shoved to the ground and robbed in the park­ing lot of Col­lege Square Shop­ping Cen­ter on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened as the woman was fin­ish­ing load­ing gro­ceries into her car out­side the Acme su­per­mar­ket at 2:45 p.m., ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Police Depart­ment.

A man ap­proached her from be­hind and pushed her to the ground, Bryda said. He grabbed her purse, which con­tained an iPhone and other be­long­ings, and ran to­ward Ogle­town Road. The woman suf­fered an in­jury to her el­bow but did not re­quire im­me­di­ate med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

The phone was later re­cov­ered on Ogle­town Road near Stafford Way.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as a white man in his 20s wear­ing a tan jacket and a hat. No sur­veil­lance video was avail­able.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent should con­tact De­tec­tive Daniel Bys­tricky at DBys­tricky@ne­wark.de.us or 302-366-7100 ext. 3136.
