Elderly North Braddock man robbed after visiting bank
An elderly man was reportedly followed from a bank in Homestead and robbed inside his North Braddock home.
The victim spoke with news partners WPXI about the incident Wednesday.
“I’m an older person. I just had knee surgery, and I just felt helpless,” the man said.
The victim told WPXI someone knocked on his front door asking for help as a result of car trouble. When he went to get his car keys, the man went into the home and made off with a bag of money and personal items.
He said he was robbed of $2,000.
A description of the suspect was unavailable.
A call to North Braddock police was not immediately returned.
