The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a strong arm robbery targeting a senior citizen that took place at 708 Shady Lane Drive in Fort Walton Beach last night.
The 81-year old victim said he was collecting rent around 10:30 p.m. Thursday at a Shady Lane apartment complex when two men pushed him to the ground and grabbed his wallet. He was not seriously injured in the attack.
They got away with cash, credit cards, and other personal identification.
The victim described the suspects to deputies as two black males being about the same size, about 5’9” to 6’0” - but said he was unsure what they were wearing or which way they went after he was robbed.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS.
