Savannah woman behind bars after robbing an elderly man

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah woman is behind bars charged with robbing and hurting an elderly man who suffers from alzheimers.

Friday a judge arraigned Karen Williams. Police say last month she broke into her 75-year old neighbor's home, dragged him outside and stole his wallet and $100.

It happened at Madison apartments on west 54th street. Bond was denied for Williams.

Police had been looking for her for a month, then Thursday morning police say she flagged down an officer and asked for a ride home. When officers discovered she was wanted, she was arrested.
