You rob an old lady who can’t defend herself? Not only is he a low life piece of sewer sludge but he’s a coward and I hope they get him, put him in Rikers where they can show him what a real man is. My heart goes out to her and I know the physical wounds will heal but the mental and emotional will take longer. I send her lots of healing hugs.
