Cops nabbed the man they say robbed and assaulted a 94-year-old woman as she walked home from a grocery store in the Northeast’s Bell’s Corner section on Easter Sunday. Police say after surveillance video of the robbery was released last week, they received several tips about the crime.
Police said 29-year-old Antonio Santiago, of Kennedy Street near James in Bridesburg, faces charges of robbery, aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, theft and receiving stolen property.
In the attack, cops said, Santiago knocked the senior citizen to the ground and stole her purse. She suffered a broken arm and several cuts and bruises, police said.
