Hello I wanted the community to be aware of robberies going on in Rockford.

My 54 year old mother was robbed in our church parking at Emmanuel Episcopal church on Park ave this morning between 1045 11 o clock. She was planting flowers in the church garden. When she finished she put a shovel in her back seat, within seconds her face was slammed on the passenger window.

They shoved up her against the car. One guy went threw the car. They stole her wallet ,cigarettes, lighter and sunglasses and then they opened the trunk.nothing is missing from the trunk. They told her to count to 30 and not to look if she looked,she it would be the last time she did.

Her eye is swollen. She has a black eye. She heard them running. She didnt see which way they ran. Fortunately they didnt take her phone.

The only description is they were 2 young black men. We called and left a message for the church administration. Due to the holiday theres no one there. We will inquire to see if the cameras cover any of the parking lot.

We just want people to be aware this is happening and to be on the look out.
