Ottawa Police are hunting for a suspect after an 85-year-old woman using a walker was robbed in the Carlingwood area.
Investigators say the woman was walking along Iroquois Avenue at about 2PM on Tuesday when - as she turned onto Haymarket - a suspect grabbed her purse and ran away through the Carlingwood Mall parking garage.
The senior wasn't hurt.
The suspect is decribed as a white man, standing 5'10 with a thin build and short dark hair.
He was wearing a black shirt and black pants.
This is the third time something like this has happened in that area recently, and the Robbery Unit says it's likely the cases are linked.
