Suspect Caught Wearing 70-Year-Old Woman's Clothes

Sandra Rowells was in the midst of her afternoon nap when a man forced his way into her Greensboro home.

The man was trying to hide from police, and he even offered Rowells 500 dollars to help him get away.

Rowells didn't want any money. She just wanted out, and she left the house.

Police say Jahmell Kareem had just led police officers from High Point and Archdale and Highway Patrol troopers on a 15-mile chase up Interstate 85. When officers caught up with him, he had put on some of Rowells' clothing.

When police asked if she recognized Kareem as the man who entered her house, she said yes, and it made her mad because he was wearing a T-shirt her daughter had sent her from Florida.

Police say Kareem faces more than a dozen charges related to Tuesday's chase, including felony hit-and-run and doing 132 miles per hour in a 65 zone.

Greensboro police also served Kareem with warrants from previous
incidents.
