The robbery of four women as they returned home from shopping, has been selected by Goldsboro-Wayne County Crime Stoppers as this week's "Crime of the Week."
Three of the women were in their 80s.
The first victim was returning to her apartment on Steele Street in Mount Olive on Wednesday. She was approached by a slender black man, wearing a dark blue or black hooded sweatshirt and a toboggan. The robber fled in a dark, older-model vehicle.
Several hours later, the second woman was taking items to her home on Gloucester Road in Goldsboro. A black man followed her inside, grabbed her purse and fled.
Then at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday, the third woman was taking groceries to her apartment on Langston Drive. As she got to the stairwell, a slim black man, dressed in dark clothing, demanded her purse. When she refused, he cut the purse strap, threatened the woman and fled in a dark, older-model car.
The fourth woman was returning at about 12:45 p.m. Friday to her home on South John Street after shopping on Spence Avenue. As she began to unload packages, a dark older-model car drove up, and a black man, dressed in dark clothing, got out and approached her. He cut her purse strap and fled with it.
Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 735-2255. Callers may remain anonymous, and they may be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000, if their information leads to arrests in felony cases.
