Robbery In Kroger Parking Lot

car 006It was Senior Day at Kroger in Springfield Wednesday, but at least two people will remember it another way.

After buying groceries a man and a woman started putting their groceries in their car around 3:00pm when a vehicle with two men inside stopped near by, one of the men jumped out of the car and pushed a cart at them and then reached in their vehicle and grabbed the woman’s purse. A struggle ensued according to Police Chief David Thompson.

One of the victims (a male) was pushed to the ground so hard that he broke his arm or wrist and suffered a contusion on his head, according to the police report. The suspects were able to get away with the woman’s purse. The police report also said that during the robbery the woman was also pushed to the ground very hard.

The suspect that took the purse is described as a black male, slim build, possibly in his 20’s and was seen leaving in a small black two door sedan. The suspect left the parking lot and went West on 17th.

    Out of respect for our older citizens.

    I never carry a purse any more. All vital stuff is in my pocket or “elsewhere”. Springfield has become so crime ridden in the last few years. I have been putting off buying pepper spray for a while now. Guess I better get some since 99% of the time I’m alone.

    And I agree, what BRAVE “men” to pick on the elderly. Sickening.

    Does Kroger have surveillance cameras?

    This truly saddens me. I do my shopping there as do so many of you. Have been there many times alone , sometimes at night. Now a little more if my security and my individualism has been taken awsy, because I will not go alone anymore. Someone just came into my yard yesterday and took all the apples off my tree. Every single one, right under our noses. Where did respect go to? Why can’t we feel safe anymore at the grocery store, in our own homes?
