Philadelphia police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who punched an 81-year-old woman and robbed her of her handbag after she got off a SEPTA bus in Philadelphia’s Ivy Hill section last month.


Police on Wednesday released images of the suspect, who at some point was seen in a SEPTA bus and subway station.

Police said that about 3:15 p.m. March 20, this same man got out of a vehicle, a mid-sized sedan, then approached the woman on the 8400 block of Thouron Avenue after she had gotten off a bus. He punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground, then stole her bag, police said.





After the robbery, the man got back into the vehicle, which was driven by another man, and fled. The victim suffered minor injuries, police said.

The robber was described as black, in his mid-20s, and of medium build. He had a light beard and was wearing a gray knit cap, a dark-colored jacket with a fur-lined hood, and faded jeans, police said.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Detective Bransfield in the Northwest Detective Division at 215-686-3353.
