79 Year Old Woman Robbed Leaving Funeral
Lewiston Police Capt. Tom Greene says the Clarkston woman was walking out of a church on Wednesday at about noon when she was confronted by the 16-year-old boy on the sidewalk.
The Lewiston Tribune reports the teen allegedly grabbed the woman’s purse and ran away. The woman was not hurt. Greene says a police officer saw the teen run into a residence, and authorities arrested the boy within minutes.
Police say the teen faces charges of felony robbery. He has been booked into the Region II Juvenile Detention Center on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant.
