Police are searching for an aggravated robbery suspect accused of targeting two elderly residents in the last two months.
The incidents both happened at Walgreens, 6515 Camp Bowie Boulevard, in southwest Fort Worth, according to a police press release Tuesday.
The suspect, a white man 25 to 30 years old, is accused of robbing a 73-year-old woman at gunpoint in the parking lot of the store last Thursday. The man waited for the woman to get into her car before producing a handgun, getting her purse and fleeing, police said.
Witnesses saw the victim run west on Boyce Street.

A similar aggravated robbery and kidnapping took place at the same location in August.
The suspect, who police believe is the same man, got into a 74-year-old man’s car and forced him at gunpoint to drive to another location, police said.
The suspect then stole the man’s property and fled on foot, according to Tuesday’s press release.
Police described the suspect as 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall with a slender build, light complexion and “sandy” hair. Detectives think the suspect lives in or frequents the area.
