The victim, who was using a walker, was at the front counter where he put down a $50 bill. That's when an unidentified woman proceeded to take the money from the counter.
The man then tried to get the money back, but the suspect then pushes him away and manages to flee the scene.
The individual is described as a female, 40 to 50 years old, and was last seen wearing a black du-rag on her head and all black clothing.

I heard that "Bronx" was an old Indian word that meant "Hey Chief, look, the trees is dead." - Archie Bunker
black du-rag on her head.
A silk-like material worn around the head of black males as a fashion statement. It wraps around the skull, with a small flap hanging down in the rear, over the neck.
Doo-Rags originated in prisons in the 1970’s, to try and simulate the long hair of a (male) female inmate, so the (male) males, could easily tell them apart. They were originally black, but many colors are in use today.
Now banned in most prisons of today, Doo-Rags have moved into main stream black fashion, and the use no longer signifies any sexual connotations. Court cases in New York City have supported the use of Doo-rags at work, when employers complained that it was not “appropriate”. Black men have even been seen in a business suit, coming from work, wearing a doo rag. Bald Black men (with no braids) also wear doo rags. A doo rag, under a baseball cap, it also gaining popularity.
The word derivation is “Hairdoo rag”
Did you see Jamal? He look fly in his doo-rag.
Are they sure it wasn't a hijab?
That's a bit biased. Old (pagan) and new (Muslim) Africa are both well-represented in our under-cities. Why prejudge?
Well I’m glad they got a good description of her....she ought to be caught any day now....../s
Guess she figured the resale value wasn't much and took the money instead.
Could it be ... uhhhh ... racism? — That the cops and the tv station executives presume that everyone already knows the race of the felon and that a further description would be redundant?
I was told in the Sixties, by a Black guy, that a doo rag was worn after applying hair straightener treatment to keep the hair flat and straight until the treatment was done. It was usually a piece of a ladies silk stocking,
“originated in prisons in the 1970s” Bull! I remember seeing them in the Fifties! Who makes dis chit up?
Bronx burka ?
Was it a white “she” robbed or a fellow black?
This is why you should never put money down on the counter. Instead put it straight into the cashiers hand.
No skin tone description is description enough.
Why are they reporting that it was a woman? And isn’t reporting that she is 40-50 years old age-ist? If they’re going to do politically correct reporting, they might as well go all the way.
