A man in Minnesota who allegedly tried to assault an elderly woman in Walgreens became officers of his own mother

Minnesota investigators looking for a man caught on surveillance video allegedly knocking down an elderly woman while trying to snatch her purse as she walked into a Walgreens were tipped off about the man’s identity by his own mother.

Isaiah Jamal Foster, 18, of Richfield, was already sitting in Ramsey County Jail in connection with a Tuesday that a woman and her young child were stolen with cars, the St Paul Police Department said. His mother called police and handed over her son to authorities, a police spokesman told Fox News.

An 81-year-old woman was injured when a suspected thief tried to rip her purse from her as she was heading into a Minnesota Walgreens in broad daylight.

Now he faces first-degree aggravated robbery attempts and third-degree assault, resulting in significant bodily harm to the robbery on Dec. 23 outside the grocery store.

Security video inside Walgreens shows patrons coming in. As an 81-year-old woman walks inside, a man behind her is seen tearing a purse out of her hands. As she tries to hold on, she is violently pulled to the ground.

“She fell to the ground, hit her head and suffered a brain hemorrhage, among other injuries,” police said in a Facebook post. “But she’s tough and did not give up her purse or the money inside and should be out of the hospital soon.”

The woman experienced complications due to the attack, police said, causing her to miss Christmas with her family.

The alleged assault resembles another incident in which an 85-year-old woman was robbed at an Aldi grocery store a day earlier. She spent a week in hospital after being injured when a man grabbed her purse in the parking lot while loading groceries into a vehicle, TwinCities.com reported.

The woman told police she was running after the suspect, but he pushed her to the ground and her head hit the sidewalk.

She had a heart attack, two black eyes and lost $ 4,000 that she had withdrawn from the bank to buy Christmas presents. Authorities do not believe the two incidents were carried out by the same suspects.
