An 84-year-old woman was robbed while unloading groceries outside her home Thursday night, according to a report from Little Rock police.

The woman told officers she was getting groceries out of her vehicle on Mellon Street, about a block from Meriwether Park, when the robber approached her from behind around 8:05 p.m.

The male assailant, who the woman could not describe and said may have been wearing a mask, reportedly shoved her to the ground, pulled out a silver gun and demanded her wallet.

The woman said he then jumped into the passenger side of a truck and fled down Mellon Street.

The woman’s credit card and identification card were found Friday morning, police said.

As of Friday afternoon, no arrests had been made.

This is becoming an epidemic. It seems vulnerable people - esp women and the elderly - are being followed from places like grocery stores and then attacked as they arrive home.

Time for vulnerable people to have a companion to go with them to/from shopping, etc. Said companion should be carrying.......and have no qualms about using same when necessary.

I'm confused ..." he jumped into the passenger side of the vehicle... then fled down mellon street" did he flee running or did he steal her truck and drive off ?

Ok boxer, it reads, "...the perp jumped into the passenger side of A truck"...not her vehicle. Maybe it's been edited by the reporter.

These new age perp's cruise around in 2's or 3's, a get away driver and 1 or 2 henchmen. Gang style. Low life's preying on the elderly make me sick.
