  • by


Sources are reporting another robbery in Rockford.

In the neighborhood just North of Swedish American Hospital.

Sources are reporting a robbery that happened around 5:30 pm near the area of 212 Dougherty Pl

It is unclear at this time, if this robbery is related to the numerous other robberies in the same general area recently.

Source said: ” This was my mother it happened to. They pulled her backwards off the porch, down the stairs, and off to the side. Broke her purse strap but didn’t actually get the purse as it was wrapped around her. My dad heard her fall and assumed it was from ice. He flung the upstairs window open and said he was coming and I’m assuming it spooked them enough to run as he saw two guys bolt. When he stuck his head out. She had just walked home from east state Walgreens. She’s okay, was wearing my dad’s coat so she was a bit more padded than usual, but she’s fragile (on disability with various health issues) and on blood thinners, so I’m sure come tomorrow she’ll barely be able to move, and will be black and blue all over. And the joke is that after the Walgreens trip to pick up her meds and a frozen pizza she had all of a dollar and some change on her, and this could have ended far more poorly”
