The man then ran out and climbed into an SUV, but the victim was right behind him, as she followed him outside to try and get her handbag bag. The lady reached the car as the thief put the SUV in reverse and opened the door.

People that saw the incident occur blocked the employee, 25-year-old Kyle Snyder, from driving away, but got out and ran off before police arrived. However, the man got arrested later on when he returned to the McDonald’s branch later during the day.

Paramedics got called to treat the 76-year-old Raiven Le Fay, but thankfully she only sustained minor injuries and didn’t need to go to a hospital.

As police search for another man that robbed an elderly person, one can't help but wonder whether senior citizens are being targeted because they present an easier target, physically wise.

On December 4, around 4pm an elderly man got robbed of lottery tickets and $70 in cash, outside a Shell gas station in the Ogontz section of Philadelphia. The robber pushed the poor elderly man over before he ran off with his loot, but thankfully the elderly man only sustained scrapes and bruises.

The suspect is described as about 50 years old, black with a light complexion, with an estimated height of 5 ft 8 inches to 5 ft 10 inches. The man of medium build wore a black knit cap, black pants and shoes, and a dark green jacket with a tan or fur inner collar.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the police at 215-686-3353/3354.
