81-Year-Old Minnesota Woman Violently Robbed While Shopping Speaks Out
The victim, Judy Stuthman, was hospitalized after suffering a concussion. A suspect was charged after police say his mom turned him in. She later recanted her story, saying her son was home at the time of the attack.
Shocking video shows the would-be thief grab Judy Stuthman’s purse and drag her down to the concrete as she was heading into a Walgreens to stock up for Christmas brunch.
“I felt something brush against me, and I realized someone was trying to take my purse,” Stuthman told Inside Edition.
“I was extremely shocked,” she continued.
Stuthman suffered a concussion in the attack and spent the holidays in the hospital with bleeding in her brain.
Police posted a video of the brazen assault asking for the public’s help. According to police, a woman recognized the suspect as her son, who was then arrested and charged with aggravated robbery and assault.
“It took a tremendous amount of courage and love for her to hope her son turns his life around, and I hope he does,” Stuthman said.
But the suspect's mother later recanted her story, saying her son was home at the time of the attack.
