70-year-old Oakland woman seen attacked, robbed by 2 men after returning from bank


OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) — Shocking video shows the moment an Oakland grandmother is knocked to the ground as she’s coming home from the bank.

The video captured by her granddaughter comes on the heels of a series of attacks on seniors in Oakland’s Chinatown neighborhood.

Wanting to keep her identity private, the woman’s granddaughter says the incident happened February 3 at around 11 a.m. in the area of 6th Avenue and International Boulevard in Oakland.

In the video one suspect can be seen quickly knocking the 70-year-old to the ground while another one runs in and steal her handbag. According to her granddaughter the suspects also tried to get her cell phone but luckily it along with cash from the bank was in her pocket and was not taken

The woman’s granddaughter says she’s already on edge after a 91-year-old man and two other seniors were attacked in Chinatown in recent weeks. She plans to file a police report and is hoping to raise awareness of crimes against seniors. She continued to say her grandma was bruised but is recovering from her traumatic experience.
