East Texas Senior Robbed At Nursing Home

Tyler police need your help finding a man who robbed an East Texas senior.   It happened around 8:00 p.m. Friday night in the Melrose Nursing Center parking lot. Police say a man wearing dark clothes approached a 69 year old woman, and tried to get her in his car.   The woman fought back. Police say the suspect then grabbed the woman's purse and took off on foot. Last month, a 75 year old woman had her purse snatched across the street from the nursing home. Police did not say if the two incidents are connected.
