A 94-year-old woman was reportedly beaten and robbed after a suspect followed her inside her home, Chicago news organizations said Thursday.
The man allegedly stole the woman’s purse, fled in a stolen vehicle and crashed in the 5700 block of South Archer Avenue in Chicago.
Family members told ABC 7 Chicago that the elderly woman was Josephine Regnier, a World War II Navy veteran. She was taken to a hospital with head injuries, reports said.
The suspect was being sought out by Chicago police by Thursday afternoon.
