Thanks to Tammy for passing on from NBC Washington:

“A 94-year-old woman is recovering after someone attacked her and took her purse in D.C.’s Cleveland Park neighborhood Monday night. [2900 block of Porter Street NW, 11:15pm]

The woman says she walked to an Exxon gas station nearby to ask for help, but an employee there turned her away.”

What. The. Hell.

From the Cleveland Park Listserv:

“And sitting next to me on the bus, with his arms loaded with Rhodos. I wish we could chip in and get this guy a patch at the local community garden, anyone? It’s sad. He obviously likes plants and needs a better way of making a living.”

In 2013 the thief made it into the New York Times. In 2016 the thief may or may not have been arrested. In 2019 the saga continues.
