What’s With All the Crime Against Senior Citizens?

Over two days last week, three senior citizens fell victim to really brutal crimes. A 98-year-old man was robbed and beaten in Coney Island on Thursday, CBS reports, following the accidental shooting of a 92-year-old grandmother in Brooklyn on Wednesday and the death of a 67-year-old man in Park Slope in a robbery gone wrong, also on Thursday. The Coney Island incident happened inside a building on 21st Street: “The suspect threw the man to the ground, punched him in the face, and stole money from his pocket.” Cops are still looking for the suspect (CBS has a larger version of the photo), so if you see him, give them a call.
