A senior lady’s vehicle was stolen after she was beaten in an East Las Vegas parking lot, according to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Cops report.
” It was scary,” 80-year-old Mary Knopp stated. “A blanket or sweatshirt reviewed my head and [the suspect] hit me several times in the head.”
Wednesday around 11 a.m. Knopp she had just spent $80 at the PetSmart near Charleston and Nellis. She bought food for her 2 felines Kato and Lucy Liu in addition to her family pet rabbit Winnie.
” They get excellent food,” Knopp stated.
Wednesday’s journey resembled any other, up until she said 2 women in their 20s beat and robbed her. The suspects got away with Knopp’s 2006 gray Tradition Subaru and her handbag.
” They took my handbag but not long after they tossed it in the dumpster,” Knopp said.
Knopp stated a good Samaritan, who discovered the handbag, returned it with everything inside hours later.
” I’m presuming they simply actually wanted my automobile,” Knopp said.
A witness called authorities and Knopp was dealt with at the scene. Knopp said she wishes to get her vehicle back but she is also grateful that the circumstance was not even worse.
” I always feel like I have an angel and I’m simply happy and I thank God I’m O.K.”
Knopp submitted an authorities report with police after the event. She said the local PetSmart provided her the store items that were taken totally free of charge.
