Police are looking for a man they say mugged a 70 year-old woman in the middle of the day.

Rocky Mount police say 24 year-old Joshua Alston approached the victim in the parking lot of the Golden East Mall Saturday, and demanded her purse. She refused and that's when police say Alston grabbed her purse and pushed her to the ground. Alston is wanted for assault on a female and felony larceny.

    Get your concealed carry people. Protect your selves. These little punks are everywhere and you can't depend on the police to be everywhere. Except for sitting beside the road trying to catch someone speeding. Protect yourselves and your family!

    No Chris, they will probably charge the 70 year old victim with a hate crime because she didn't give up her money when he axed for it.

      I sure hope that you are trying to be funny with your post. If not, then you must be one ignorant fool. The only reason WITN posted this one was to let everyone see just how ignorant you are!

        Anonymous is not being funny. If they spent as much time trying to be more educated than robbing, maybe they would not talk that way. And not to worry anonymous Obama is spreading enough wealth.

    Can we charge this lil princess with a hate crime, since it was against the elderly?
