Franklin Police are investigating the robbery of a senior citizen.
Late Tuesday morning, the suspect approached and befriended the victim, in her 80’s, outside of the Moores Lane Publix, in Brentwood. With a fraudulent story intended to distract and confuse the victim, the suspect eventually got into the victim’s car with her, convincing her to drive to a Franklin bank and withdraw several thousand dollars from her account. When the victim became suspicious and told the suspect that she was not going to give her any money, things quickly turned ugly. While still seated inside of the victim’s car, the suspect implied that she had a weapon and demanded the senior’s cash. The suspect fled on foot following the robbery.
Information regarding the suspect in this case is worth up to $1,000
