TOMS RIVER - Police are looking for a man who pushed his way into a home and knocked down a 102-year-old lady.
The victim tells News 12 New Jersey that the incident happened at around 8 p.m. Monday. Evelyn Drucker says that she was sitting down watching TV when the doorbell rang. Drucker’s daughter answered the door and the suspect pushed his way inside.
According to the victim, the man knocked her down and pulled off her Life Alert pendant so she couldn’t call for help. Police say the man demanded money and took off with $35 and the women’s house phone.
