Orlando police looking for men accused of beating up, robbing elderly woman at gunpoint
ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orlando Police Department is searching for two men they said battered an elderly woman and robbed her at gunpoint because she refused to give them money.
Police say the suspect followed the 74-year-old victim out of a business in the 4300 block of Clarcona Ocoee Rd. after seeing she had cash. When they got outside, police say they asked the woman for some money and she refused.
"As the victim walked behind the plaza at that location, the same suspects pulled up in an older model black Toyota 4-door sedan and robbed the victim at gun point," police said in a press release to FOX 35 News.
The suspects are also accused of battering the woman. Police say they took off with the woman's purse and about $600.
