Memphis, TN-An 18 year old was taken into custody after police say he robbed a woman with a walker.
The victim told police that she was walking home from the T&A Market using her walker on Feb 1 when a man approached her in the area of Eastwind and Southwind Drive.
The suspect told the woman to “be quiet and not say anything.” As she stood there, he reached around her and into the front pocket of her hoodie, taking her wallet. He then took off with more than $100 in cash, her ID, a social security card, a medical card, and her EBT card.
Once he left, she said she started screaming for help.
On Thursday, March 7, Dezmond Lofties, 18, was brought in as a witness in a recent murder and as a suspect in the robbery. That’s when police said he admitted to robbing her and said he split the money with his brother.
