As CBS has reported, police have arrested two young people, attacking elderly from Philadelphia to Bucks County.
22-year-old John Ferris and 20-year-old Kathleen Gilchrist would pull up along side of their victims, all women in the age of 80s, grab their bags and drive away.
An 85- year-old lady from Bensalem became one of their victims. As soon as she has got out of her car, Ferris grabbed her pocketbook, but she offered resistance. The criminals started driving, dragging the woman who had fallen on the ground. She is still recovering from injuries.
However she helped police to determine these “Bonnie and Clyde” who are responsible for six crimes of same fashion: 4 in Northeast Philadelphia and 2 in Bensalem. The suspects remain in jail on assault and theft-related offenses.
They’re due in court in two weeks.
