Woman punches, pepper-sprays, and steals from 72-year-old boyfriend

A woman was arrested Thursday for beating up her elderly boyfriend. 

Police in Gainesville say that the 26-year-old woman punched the 72-year-old man, pepper sprayed him, and then stole $1,600 dollars.

The two have been in an on-again, off-again relationship for three years. She started to attack him after he told her that he wanted to see other people.
