Elderly Woman Assaulted

A Piggly Wiggly parking lot is now the scene of two attacks on elderly women. The latest attack happened around 3pm yesterday afternoon at the Norwood Plaza shopping center on Skidaway Road in Sandfly. An 82-year-old woman was loading groceries into her car when she was attacked from behind. The suspects tried to get her purse, but she held on. She was hurting in the head and legs. This morning, the woman's recovering at home.

This is the same parking lot where someone attacked Sarah Price at the same time of day in January. They drove up in a truck and grabbed her purse, knocking her down. The 79-year-old woman died a few days later.

The suspects from yesterday's robbery took off in a green Ford Thunderbird, with the Georgia tag 530-NYN. It was stolen from Statesboro.

If you know anything about the attacks, please call the Chatham County police at 652-6622 or CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
