HAMILTON, Ohio – A reward of $1,000 was offered Wednesday for a recent robbery case that involved a senior couple in Hamilton.
Detectives of the Hamilton Police Department are asking for help from the public to identify the suspects.
Two masked teens tried to rob a 70-year-old man and his 67-year-old wife in the 900 block of Ross Avenue about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
Video shows the couple walking when they were accosted from behind. One would-be robber tried to grab the husband’s wallet from his rear pocket. They also demanded the woman hand over her purse. She refused.
The woman fell during the altercation, appearing to trip over the curb.
The pair ran off without getting anything.
WCPO reporter Jay Warren talked to Dan Biondo, Commander of Amvets Post 1983.
"When we found out this had happened, we were upset, and decided we would offer a reward for the apprehension of these two guys," Biondo said.
Anyone who recognizes the teens or their clothing from the video should call Det. Pat Erb at (513) 868-5811, extension 1284, or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
