AKRON, Ohio — A warrant has been issued by Akron police for a 28-year-old woman who allegedly robbed her 86-year-old grandfather at home Monday night, according to police.

Leandrea C. Wright, of Bellows Street, is wanted for robbery and domestic violence, police say.

Officers responded at about 8 p.m. to a home in the 1300 block of Bellows Street for a robbery.

An 86-year-old man told police that his granddaughter tried to take his wallet. When he didn't comply, she pushed him on the floor, according to the report.

The 86-year-old man wrestled with his granddaughter on the floor. The man's 16-year-old great granddaughter came downstairs and helped her grandfather off of the floor.

At that time, Wright took his wallet and $39 before she left the house.

Police said the man was not injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Akron Police Department at 330-375-2490.
