An elderly woman was robbed by another woman who asked her for help earlier this month.

On July 13, Cleveland Police say Sharon Nolan was walking near 4501 State Road  when Darlene Boromissza yelled to Nolan asking for money. Boromissza said she needed to buy food for her child.

Nolan reportedly agreed to give Boromissza some money once she got change from the store.

Once Nolan got change, she exited the store and started walking up State Road. Boromissza began chasing Nolan and attacked her, grabbed her purse and kicked her until items fell out of the purse.

Nolan told police Boromissza stole $20 from her.
